2017 Arabesque x Ultimate Aby

The first litter of the season was born in March. It was very tiny! Dam was an arabesque produced by Dan Brown. Sire was an ultimate aby produced by Mike Weitzman. This was a first litter for both.



Courting


Building follicles


The female looked great until a month in, and then stopped growing. I thought she might be carrying slugs but hoped otherwise. Turns out she had 14 of them in there.


And one extremely deformed still.


Fortunately, there were two live, healthy looking babies in there too.
1.0 Aby
Neonate


First shed



~4 months



0.1 Aby arabesque (my keeper)
Neonate

First shed



~4 months

At least you got one baby with both genes combined!! But ahh man that's terrible at least you had a feeling it was going to be all slugs instead of one giant shell shocker....which I'm sure it still was.


Did you do anything out of the norm that season or do you think the male was just not getting good lock up or enough baby juice in there?


You have very nice boas too!!

Thanks much! And I'm not sure. She was showing interest very early in the season so I paired them earlier than I usually do. He was also at the top of one of the cage stacks where it's quite warm, so maybe he didn't cool enough (I don't control my cooling, the room fluctuates a little with the seasons outside).

Frankly, I'm surprised she went at all and was very happy to have the two babies show, mostly because I bought her as an unproven adult that turned out to be much younger than I thought and because of the (seemingly common) arabesque issues people have mentioned.
