    Re: 2011 Checkered Garter babies

    Great news. Glad you found the little scrub.

    I just found a baby Red Sided on the floor.
    Will have to do a head count to see if it's a new one or one of the 33.
    Not sure how it could have gotten out of the tall tub they are in.
    It may have escaped from the enclosure it was born in.

    Re: 2011 Checkered Garter babies

    I've had babies get out of tall tubs with closed lids before. I'm much more careful about choosing tubs now, any really soft lids or lids that have a loose gap along the sides just enough to wedge a tiny head into can have an escapee.

    I've watched my baby checkereds go into the water container to get wet then use the surface tension of the water like a suction cup pressing their body against the side and just crawl right up the side of a tall smooth enclosure.

    Re: 2011 Checkered Garter babies

    ok... I dunno what everyone thinks of this but I tried... well i did pop the first litter of babies (That I still have) and I came out with;
    Both pastels and 2 albinos - Male
    the other 4 albinos - Female.
    It was kind of messy and stinky as they were pooping and musking on me as i was popping them.
