    Kalatoa 100% Pure SD Retic Progression (Pic heavy...)

    Hey! Just wanted to share a short progression of my now 6 month old Kalatoa Super Dwarf Retic. Not exactly a giant but a "tiny giant" of sorts. Apologies for some of the blurry cell phone pics, she doesn't exactly like to hold still for any period of time.
    Here's Phyllis, hatched by Daniel Solis mid Feb (started pipping 2/11/16, clutch all out of the eggs by 2/14/16)


    Deep in shed the day she arrived (freezing cold and an entire day late... Thanks for sending her to Washington State after she was 20 min from my doorstep in Missouri, FedEx!)

    Exploring her new enclosure. Itty bitty at 50ish grams and three weeks old.


    Late march, about 6 weeks old here and all fired up!


    5 months old and taking a bath after she shed. Dramatic size increase but still tiny for a retic


    Just about 6 months old here. Does this every time she's out and I have a hat on. Growing like a weed! In the low 500 gram range up from low 50 gram range when she arrived.

    Mid yawn the other night.


    And Geoffrey, my 7 year old Pastel BP.

    I can't get the most recent pictures to upload of Phyllis with her brightest colors yet when she was super fired up last night and looked amazing. Just wanted to share my newest critter with everyone! Thanks for looking!

    Looks like mine. I bet ours are clutch mates! Got mine about the same time. Got mine from Daniel solis too. Mine got delayed because of storms in Memphis. Still arrived the right day though.

    Yep! From that same clutch he hatched in February. How is yours doing, yodawagon?
    Yeah, FedEx totally dropped the ball and misread a label somewhere along the line and sent her clear across the country after she was in my city. Stressed both of us out quite a bit especially considering it was the only time I've had an animal shipped to me.

    Thanks! Nope, she's a tad flighty when getting her out of the cage but settles right down. She is very food driven, has a feeding response that rivals any other living thing on earth, but I started hook training her from day one and she's never struck at me once I get a hook on her. Peed on me numerous times but no bites haha!

    Nah, she's getting progressively lighter as she grows. She was super dark even right after shed when she was little(er) but now she's fairly light. Lots of super pretty greys and some yellow starting to come in a little stronger but it depends on the day. Definitely would like to get another some day down the road. Maybe a SD tiger or albino of some sort

    Ours are definitely sisters. They sound very similar. Mine has a very strong feeding response, but not aggressive. Once she's out of her cage she's fine. Mine Looks smaller then yours, I think. We tried to measure her, and figure she's around 4 foot 8.

    Yeah she's not aggressive but very, shall we say, assertive when it comes to feeding time. Same as yours, puppy dog tame once she's out of her cage. Closest measurement I've got on mine is currently around 3.5-4 feet. Got her to crawl along the back of the couch and stretched out a tape measure along side her. Saw another one of the clutch mates on Instagram (small world, right?!) the other day and apparently it's only like 2.5 feet. Mine was about 2feet the day she got here 5 months ago. What's yours weigh now yoda? Mine's at about 525grams last I weighed her
