Thanks. I'm really excited about this whole thing. This is my first successful breeding, and is at the end of several years of work.

Also, I finally got to cleaning out the birthing cage, and found 2 more healthy babies, 2 more stillborns, and 2 more slugs, bringing the total to:

24 healthy babies, 4 stillborn, and 7 slugs. Hopefully she is done birthing, because I am running short on space. haha.

Thanks. I literally had to shuffle a bunch of my other animals around just to make room. If she has one more baby, I'm going to have to keep it in a Tupperware bin. Haha.

On the plus side, they have been known to give birth to up to 46 babies, so I should be grateful that there aren't quite so many. It worked out quite well, and she managed to have exactly as many as I could handle. Plus, always grateful for healthy babies. Now to get them eating and hopefully figure out what to do with them all. Haha.

Well im sure there is some kind of a market for them and can be sold to lighten the load minus a few holdbacks

Thanks. I just feel really lucky to be working with this species and hopefully helping to make them more widespread in the hobby, especially considering how much adversity they face in the wild.
