I have been waiting for a quality cb male mossy leaf tail gecko for my female for a while. A good friend @the_reptile_lord is doing great with these guys and was nice enough to let me take a hatchling off his hands. This little guy is unreal and I can't wait to grow him up!
Cape file snakes are usually pretty shy and secretive so I thought I'd sneak a pic of some sexy time. These guys look so chilled about the whole process that you have to look really closely to confirm if an actual copulation is taking place. #capefilesnake#mating#captivebred#indigenous#ditaloprojects
I decided upon a name for G5,VC-006m. In respect for his Daddy Charles, I've named him "Charlton" In this photo the young man is displaying to a perspective mate all his goods!!!! I watched in amazement as he waved to her with his elongated forelegs then pounded out a beat with his pedipalps upon the glass enclosure!!!! This went on for ten minutes, until he realized that she wanted nothing to do with him and his fancy courtship display. :( maybe next time Charlton. #phidippusaudax#salticidae#jumpingspider#captivebred#spiderlove#shawdax#matingdance
If you didn't know, my first tegu that I could call my own is a Columbian Black and Gold named Tuukka. Columbians get a bad rap when in comparison with their Argentine cousins. This also comes with the fact most (maybe all) Columbians are wild caught imports that sell for $20 a piece. Today, I pick up a female Columbian tegu who will eventually be introduced to Tuukka in the hopes of captive bred Columbian babies.
