Escapee finally gave birth to 24 healthy babies! No stillborn or slugs!!
Wow! That’s a lot of babies . Happy to hear there were no stillborns!
Happy to hear that they are all healthy! They are beautiful .
Thanks everyone! This is both hers and my first ever litter! Poor girl looks like a tube of toothpaste.
They are so cute! Congratulations!
Look at them all 🥲❤️
So cool! They all look amazing! I’m hoping to breed sand boas in a couple years.
Congratulations look at all the little cute worms.
I’m not surprised popping that many babies out!
How do you guys care for your newborns @westridge and community? Currently I split them into 2 baby bins on moistened paper towels with a shallow water dish until they shed in about a week or so. I will then give them each their own baby bin and attempt feeding afterwards. Am I doing everything right? Is it bad to keep them on damp paper towels until their first shed? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
We clean, weigh and sex them, then separate into individual tubs with damp paper towels and nothing else. They don’t need a water bowl yet because they are still absorbing yolk. Some people keep them together until they shed, which is not wrong, but we prefer to be able to tell what is going on with each baby individually. After they shed, they get dry paper towel substrate and a water bowl, and then we start trying to feed them.
Congratulations on all those cuties!!
Thanks guys, I’m so proud of my girl! Just changed out their paper towels and weighed them all. 1 runt at 8 grams, 18 at 9 grams and 5 overachievers at 10 grams. All the babies still appear to be healthy and lively!
They’re so tiny and adorable!! I can’t believe they have that many
They are beautiful babies. Congratulations
