4 Perfect Babies!

Posted by Sonja K. at 5/29/2012 1:21:32 PM

I returned from my weekend away to find that the Rhino Rat babies had all made it from their eggs safe and sound! It was pretty fun to see them huddled up together in one of the corners of their incubation bin. They are all in the midst of their first shed, but still so cute!

I have also included a picture of Katana and Tanto, the proud parents.

Congrats, they are adorable! Do they go through a pretty dramatic color change then?

Where is the egg tooth on these guys? Is it in the traditional location on the tip of the actual snout, or is it on the extension? Very neat looking.

Lauren : When I lost my previous ones, they were ~ 19 months, and the color change was just starting to really come into play... seems of what I've found, between 18 and 24 months is when most of the color change takes place.

Here's a close-up pic that shows the egg tooth:

Major congrats, Sonja!!!!  I'm so glad to see things picking up, looking up, and springing back to life for you after what you went through. You are amazing! An inspiration to us all!!! They are cute as hell!!! Shame there is only 4...cuz it looks like there's several folks who'd give their "egg tooth" for one!!! 

Sonja K. ,

You're not the only one that wishes there were more than 4... although getting them feeding may change that thought - LOL

That was a year ago today, Mel... hard to believe I am where I am...

All I can say is that each and every one in my collection, and each baby born is an absolute blessing! And I thank everybody that supported me...

OMG! A year Wow. I'm sure it's all still fresh in your mind, but I am so thrilled for what you've accomplished in such a short time, Sonja. Continuing to work with different and unusual species....and having them produce for you!!! Awesome! 

Like I said, an amazing lady and an inspiration to us all. Most definitely lots of blessings!! Couldn't be happening to a nicer person! And I'm truly very happy for you!

I couldn't have said it better Melly. Actually, I could say the same of both of you wonderful women. Two of my favorite lady-herpers.       -p-

Congrats on the cuties!

I'm new in iherp-land but just read your blog from last year. Dear God, how devastating a loss. Scrolling through the list and reading each name was heartwrenching. I'm so sorry. I hope the new hatchlings are some comfort.

I'm so proud of what you have done with the past year, Sonja.
