More Whitewater "Albino" (amelanistic) babies!

Well, yesterday, I left at 5:00 pm , and when I came home at 6:30 pm, I noticed that I had one more Pastel Amel het snow baby in the tank! I removed the baby and went to place it in the nusery tank only to see that I my other WW Amel female (in the enclosure below) was in the middle of giving birth to a baby and that there were 3 others in with her! First let me show you the parents. The female is very pretty, and has a pattern that looks more like the Limberg Amels than a Whitewater. The male also has a very heavy pattern that seems to have a lot of coastal influence. His color is as good as any amel's color could ever be. He is a super bright orange. It is not hard to see why I put these two together.

Even at the young age of 14 hours of age, it is already becoming apparent that two of the four babies are already showing heavier patterns and brighter colors. Just like Tuesday night's litter, these guys are very large (12 inches!)

Here are a few more pics. These babies also have the same cool eyes with the dark iris and the red pupil.

Those are some great looking snakes. Those pupils are really something.

Thanks, I am glad you like them. I really get excited this time of year. Babies are always fun (Reptilian babies that is).

wow 12"s at birth, is that due to prenatal care and heavy feeding? or do they stop feeding when they are gravid? I'm not really a snake person but I have always thought about getting a boa like this as a pet , or even a pair.

I am not sure, but in my experience smaller litters do yeild larger offspring, and larger litters usually contain smaller babies. There is only so mych the female can provide to accomodate the young inside her. My litter before this one produced babies that were over 13 inches! Both of the grevid females went off food for the last couple of months of the pregnancy.
