    First ASF litter - Thanks Ed

    Last night when I came back from my vacation in DC, I came back to my first litter of ASF (not really a surprise the female look VERY pregnant before I left)

    So thanks Ed

    As you can see momma is making the best use of the food dish!






    I have not counted the ugly babies yet, however I messed around in the enclosure and pet my other ASF without any problem!

    I guess they have not turned into those blood thirsty monsters yet.

    Welcome back Deborah! My babies are about a week old or so now! But they have them well hidden - and the male likes to nip.

    I already did congrats on the other forum... but you have to admit the babies are darn ugly in a really cute way.

    Always bizarre seeing their patterns from day one!

    Congrats on the food... I mean pups... I mean feeders in a feeding dish... sad irony really.

    2 litters at the same time... nice. You will be run over in no time.

    How many are you planning on holding back as breeders?

    I think if anyone can tame the demons it would be you.

    PS: I took your advice about holding onto their tails while handling them... works great. Keeps them in hand and keeps their faces away from tempting tasty fingers.

    Probably 2.6 maybe 3.9 not sure yet (need to build a new rack), The plan is to switch most of my and likely the colubrids to ASF and keep regular rats and mice for hatchlings.

    That's because I am more evil they they are
