Re: lodingi

I'm still leaning toward normal juvie. I think we are so used to seeing darker cb babies and never see wild babies that have not been bred for blackness.......But since I've never seen a wc baby either, it's just a guess. :lol:


I'll send an email to a Pituophis authority, and see what he thinks.

How big was it? Because it looks more like a juvie which has not darkened yet to me, but it is hard to judge size in the pics.

An excellent point, and something that I agree with. However, for what do you need more than 2 Pacific Treefrogs? The 20 baby Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia I collected have to eat something, and that's their natural prey. When they get older it will be an even bigger problem, because then their n...
