    Thanks for all the kind words--Yes, I am a proud god-papa!

    I need to update my pictures, but here's one of mom, Misty. She's from Allen Repashy (a deVosjoli line crossed with a german line).


    Dad, Casper, is the lighter colored chahoua in this pic. He came from Limey at Royal Reptilia. The other chahoua is my lone male from Philippe deVosjoli.


    And just for fun, here are the same two chewies on the same log when they were juvies. I'm sure you can tell which one is Casper.

    Misty, the mom, was looking nice yesterday morning so I took her outside before heading to work. She's always soft pastel colors, but is often more green than gray. This is definitely her in her gray outfit. Looks like Casper, her man, has been playing rough with her.

    Congrats, Bea. I love it when they sleep with their tails in a curl...


    The eggs were laid on April 16th and incubated for 113 and 115 days.

    I keep my eggs at room temperature, so normally around 70-75 degrees, but it fluctuates between 65 and 82 degrees, depending on season. My 2008 ciliatus eggs laid in March, when the reptile room is cooler, incubated for 93-101 days, those laid in April took 80-86 days, and the May eggs, when the room is getting warmer, took 59-76 days. I had 100% hatch rate for the fertile March, April, and May eggs, so temp didn't affect that. I had one dud that went bad immediately.
