July has arrived, and with it (hopefully soon) ME is expecting some babies. I have a few girls here who appear to be pregnant, and I’m giving them all daily pep talks trying to speed things along. I took a couple (bad, sorry) pictures today of two of the girls – Evita and Fluke:
Evita (classic) bred with Wasp (classic) this year. The babies from this pairing tend to be very dark and speckled. This is mama Evita:
Fluke (classic) bred with Jenga (caramel) this year. This is a new pairing, so it will be exciting to see what these babies look like. This is mama Fluke:
Those photos ended up being really dark and awful, so I’ll get some outdoor shots of these gals, my other possible preggo, and probably some of the other skinks as well.
I had not mentioned it on the website before, but my irian jayas (Izuru and Mizu) also locked up a couple times, but the pairings didn’t seem to take. Now Izuru has swollen up quite a lot, so it’s possible she might be making a few babies too. She was not willing to join in today’s photoshoot, but you can see photos of both parents here: http://melsexotics.com/me-collection/blue-tongue-skinks/irian-jaya-bts/
To make sure I have enough babies to go around I’m also planning to bring in some babies from a breeder in the US. Once that’s finalized and the babies arrive I’ll post it here. Those babies will be available to people on the Waitlist first. There is still time to be added to the Waitlist before any babies arrive, just let me know 🙂
There’s been some various other happenings around here, but mostly it’s been a lot of staring into tanks hoping for tiny faces to look back at me 🙂 I’ll be sure to post when that happens!
