Scarface-Aventurine Baby Profiles (2016-F)

(Note this post is best viewed in threaded layout, where available.)

Living Gems Reptiles is pleased to finally profile the babies from its 2016 “F” litter.

Born on October 30, 2016 to Scarface (a July 2008 orange male noted for his almost perfect side patterns)…

Sire

As a baby:


As an adult:


…and Aventurine (a September 2010 orange female who was one of the early bullseye animals)…

Dam

As a yearling:


As a (gravid!) adult:


…this litter represents the first pairing of these two animals.

Note Mom lost part of her color due to “color fade,” partly I suspect due to stress from the cross-country move, but remains perfectly healthy. She will be a breeder again this year, again with Scarface (you’re about to see why!).

The 13 babies in this litter feature wonderful color, often with shades of both orange *and* red, as well as rich thick side crescents. The litter is male heavy, with eight boys and five girls.

At 15 months old, they are well-tested and healthy; eating, shedding, and pooping with no problems. As has been outlined in previous posts, all of these babies come from a disease-tested facility.

As with all LGR litters, we’ve done dozens of handling sessions for each baby, part of our commitment to start acclimating them to humans. This litter, however, is a teeny bit feistier than normal, I suspect because they were born *right* before my move, and as such were lightly handled during their first two weeks before resuming normal practice. I expect this will pass quickly with regular handling by their new human(s).

Over the following posts, please find a short profile of every baby in the litter. For each, a short description is provided, noting any behavioral or physical quirks, along with a selection of photos showing their development over the first few sheds. For dorsal chains, “short” means two to three linked spots, and “long” mean four or more.

So grab a cup of your favorite brew, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Thank you as always,

This little guy has a busy back pattern, with eight short dorsal chains. His sides are almost exclusively thick crescents, with a lone reverse bullseye on his left, and a single merged spot on his right.

Baby #04 (Female)

This little lady has a tightly packed dorsal pattern with very few chains – just one short segment. Her sides are almost exclusively thick crescents, with one merged spot on her left and two that bleed into her bottom black, and a single small neck bullseye on her right.

Baby #05 (Female)

This stunning little lass is one of the top three females in the litter, and on my holdback shortlist. She has two short dorsal chains on her back. Her sides are almost exclusively thick crescents, but her left side contains an unusual “double dot” plus a reverse bullseye, and her right has one small traditional bullseye on her neck.

Baby #08 (Male)

This feisty little fellow is one of the real characters of his litter. He apparently thinks he’s the enforcer of the group. He was not a fan of (re-)sexing day, and gleefully let my fingers know it…three times before calming down. (He shows ‘tude like this fairly often, but then quickly calms down and becomes the explorer of the litter, trying to get his snoot into anything and everything that looks interesting. I bet the initial spunk will pass quickly once he finds a human who can handle him several times a week.) He has an interesting mini-loop on one side of his head/neck, and his back is almost a chain-free, except for one long four-spot segment. His left side is exclusively thick crescents, but his right has two merged spots, one of them a double bullseye.
