    Who's talking about a "hatchling" (neonate)? I figured you were taking in a 10' footer at least...you know, an unwanted "rescue"?

    Re: Everyone knows what this means....

    Well, time for the "big" reveal.

    Tried to include a few hints, but I think the best one got overlooked entirely. I purposefully left the gender neutral since this is one of not terribly many possibilities where sexing is not done for babies.
    Additionally, not too many options that are available and sold out within a month around May/June every year.

    I'm getting a Northern Blue Tongue Skink!

    We have tentatively named "him" Spud Skywalker. Spud because they're big potato lizards and my husband loves the idea of that name, and Skywalker because the birth date was May 4th, 2019. (Couldn't resist )

    I had 24 babies to choose from from among 3 litters; one classic litter, one from dark line parents, and one from lighter/gold line parents. We got one from the gold line parents.



    Here's "his" parents:

    Perfect name...he's quite adorable, and this is an even-better choice than that 10' anaconda you first wanted. (JKG!)
    I'll look forward to your updates...I know zip about these, actually.

    Awesome! BTS rock!

    A few of us have them on here. Feel free to PM me or check out Frank's thread for info on BTS. I also have a northern. Keep in mind that some people have different locales and there is difference in care, especially regarding humidity.

    Yep, I've been researching for over a year now and think I've got a pretty good handle on the husbandry for a northern. I'll be sure to ask if I do have any questions though, thanks for the offer!

    I've definitely browsed most of Frank's thread and I think he was the first northern I saw, even. The only BTS I've seen at expos were some sort of indo (halmahera I think) that looked in rough shape, probably wild caught ones from that and their price.

    I was almost ready for one last year, but missed the baby season since I didn't have a cage set up and ready to go and these guys sell out real fast.

    Re: Everyone knows what this means....

    Well, unfortunately for me, I had to be at work, so my husband did the pick up for me and kindly took some pictures while he checked him over before setting him into the enclosure to relax.

    In the pictures, it looks a bit like there's some stuck shed, so I'm guessing that happened in shipping. We'll give a few days to settle and if there's any still there, we'll take care of it then. Looks to be along the back and not the feet, so not a huge issue there. I haven't gotten to look in person, obviously, but nothing worrisome just yet.

    According to my husband, he's a pretty chill little dude considering he got shipped from PA to TX, perfectly fine to sit in his hand for pictures.

    Enjoy!




    And a back side close up near our diffused light window, so some really nice natural light for those colors. Man does this guy look brighter than the breeder picture suggested... hahaha.
