    2023 Nymeria Litter

    (As a disclaimer, Iím currently working on making pics decent for my other threads - Iíve been in the middle of a move for over a month and havenít had access to my laptop. )

    For my second litter, I paired Crona (anery motley 66% het Kahl) x Nymeria (sunglow 66% het anery). Sadly, Crona did not prove in this litter, so I may consider selling him to free up his spot for a different anery motley 100% het Kahl. With or without additional genes. I do think Nymeria proved out, though, but with this being my first litter with aneries, I will have to see how they look after a couple sheds.

    Between the stress of moving, and waiting on Nymeria to give birth, I was going to have a heart attack. She was 3.5 weeks overdue based off the shed she had. But weíre finally settled in, and she finally dropped.

    She surprised me with a big litter, too. Sheís only 5.5í, and gave me either 17 or 18. I couldnít keep the count straight. Lmao 3 slugs, 0 stills. And sheís not looking bad for going 180+ days without food and raising a big litter. Iím really proud of her. Now just got to get her to eat. Will be rewashing her cage jic thatís putting her off, and thawing out a hopefully more tantalizing rat vs rabbit.

    Phone camera pics:




    Vs DSLR pics, that hopefully better show if any are anery to those more experienced eyes:



    Possible ghost:


    Possible anery motley (excuse the foggy lens):


    Possible anery and anery mot:


    A nice hypo motley, high on the holdback list:


    I was also surprised by these two hypos, they seem really colorful and the one is almost brickish in color (foggy lens again ):





    Obviously post shed pics to come as they shed out!

    Wow, quite the ordeal- but what a beautiful litter, & obviously you're still "vertical"- Awesome!

    Nope just the jelly rolls. I was hoping with her size sheíd have a smaller litter but Iím still really happy with them. Sheíll be paired again in 2024 or 2025. Either with a new male I pick up, or the 2022 RC hypo jungle het Kahl I got last year (and have yet to post, whoops). I also have Howl, but without knowing any hets heís pretty far down the list in favor of making albinos.

    And I can sleep better at night knowing they were all alive and appear to not be deformed or anything. Thanks! Eagerly awaiting sheds. I changed their bedding and final count is 17!

    Re: 2023 Nymeria Litter

    Finally managed to find this thread, and before I made a new one. Most of the babies have been sold, just 2 remain from the ones Iíve had available, plus 1 that is stuck on live, and one that had a regurge. Sadly none ended up anery, but I am pleasantly surprised by some of the coloring present! They are finally moving onto hoppersÖhopefully. I tried to bump them a little too soon and they didnít take kindly to it, but been bumping a gram at a time so hopefully the small hoppers are a hit this time. They are so unbelievably tiny, itís like having baby garters. At 4 months old, the biggest are almost the size of Dominikaís newborns.

    Hereís the holdbacks, at least hbs for now.

    My favorite, a female hypo motley. Super bold, contrasted colors, makes the striped tail less noticeable.




    The only other hypo motley I got in the litter, this one is a male. The female takes much of my appreciation, but he may end up winning me over. Lol







    This one is a normal female. One of the darker but colorful normals in the litter, I was advised she would be a good candidate for nice snows, and sheís definitely one of my favorites as far as normals.




    This one is a normal male who had me SWEARING UP AND DOWN was an anery, but that tail is unmistakably normal. He has that really nice pale, contrasty look of a nice anery, though, so keeping him around for now.




    This one is a hypo female. The biggest of the litter, with some really interesting fades to her saddles that have me intrigued to watch her develop.





    A hypo boy who is second in color to his top hb sister. Once he finally has a second shed, should start showing some color gains. I already have so many males, so not sure if heíll be staying or not.





    Top spot girl. Sheís lagging behind her littermates and looking kinda thin and wrinkly. So she may end up ftt, but in the meantime Iím getting her bigger meals, keeping a closer eye on her hydration, and switching to paper towel. Hopefully this is a hitch we can look back on.

    2023 Nymeria Litter

    The little hypo girl thatís my favorite had a bit of a hitch in her development, I have been feeding her every week vs the 2 weeks of the others, and meals on the bigger end of the scale. Making sure she poops after every meal, and switched to paper towel. Sheís currently in shed and slowly gaining weight. Older pic, so once she sheds, updates are to come!



    The others are all now on hopper mice full time and Iím finally having second sheds beginning.

    Female hypo motley that almost looks jungly. Definitely of my favorites of the litter, next to the hypo girl above.



    Hypo girl, sheís currently the biggest and chonkiest of the litter.



    Hypo male. Second best color of the hypos, and only a possible holdback atm.



    Male hypo motley.



    Male normal, whoís so pale and creamy he almost looks visual anery. His saddles even have an anery look. But that tail has unmistakable reds in it.



    Female normal. A darker but more complex colored normal. Lots of pinks interspersed in there.

    Re: 2023 Nymeria Litter

    Finally some second sheds!!!

    This girl is a non-holdback, she has such pale pinks she reminds me of cherry blossoms. She was extremely wriggly and refused to stay still, trying to crawl right off my arm. So she got the cupped hand treatment until she stopped moving.



    This hb guy is outstanding quality, heís closely tied to his hypo sister that Iím also keeping.


    Said sister. Where her brother has more solid, deep color, she has extreme contrast between her sides and back. She also has the attitude to match those sides.



    This normal hb boy also shed. He didnít lose any of that anery-ish creaminess.

    Thanks. Iím definitely leaning heavily into the pastels now, itís amazing just how common theyíve become over the past few years. I used to not really see them much, as a person without connections. This litter isnít pastel based, but I am doing selections that could compliment any crosses with pastels.
