    This little cutie just hatched:







    Still waiting on its clutchmate to crack its egg, but here's a new pic of Julien's older sibling, Rija:

    Congrats! You've got some good looking little ones. Both older/younger sibling have got some really nice red on them

    Great looking babies! I love forehead patterns on there guys because each one if so unique. It's the only way I could tell mine apart last year. How many eggs do you still have in the oven?

    I've got a clutch at 44 days, but my female hasn't given me any more yet, unless they're hidden.

    Keep me posted on those standingi too! We're going to have to compare notes.

    So far its clutchmate hasn't hatched, and it's the only other egg I've got. Adria hasn't laid since February, for whatever reason, though she's looking suspiciously plump ATM.

    I'm wondering if this baby incubated just a tad more quickly since its egg was on the side of the incubator closest to the heat lamp? (I'm incubating right on top of the vivs with the GEO just sitting next to the heat lamp.)

    The other egg is driving me batty, I'm checking it almost obsessively LOL

    So far no Standingi eggs that I've found, either. However- my current plan is to leave those in situ, since apparently Standings do well in family groups. I do have a little Exo set up for a Plan B for Standings hatchlings if needed.

    The extra heat would definitely make a difference, but the clutchmate will still hatch. I incubated my first clutch mostly in-situ and they were 70+ days. Got the next ones into a hovabator at 85F and they hatched at 52.

    I haven't gotten new eggs since Feb either and none at all from the standingi. Our weather up here has been up and down like crazy so I'm guessing it just isn't warm enough in my house by May/June it will be plenty warm so I'll just have to wait a little longer. Talked to a few standingi breeders and they said they only got eggs from their pairs when they were kept HOT and well-fed. I need to up temps by a good 15 degrees.

    Clutchmate Nirina made an appearance finally!








    Tony- the Standingi have basking spots that run up over 95F and are DEFINITELY well fed (possibly a bit too much so, man those things pack on the chub quickly!)

    Here's Maeva checking out Madero right after I put him in with her, she cracked me up- "Who are YOU???"



    She needed a different angle on him:



    About to fall off her perch in curiousity



    They get along GREAT- saw them piled on top of each other today. They're very affectionate, it's quite cute.
