    hey guys

    Does anyone know where to look/have any pics of their darwins growing up into their adult colours from hatchies? Really love seeing the changes from orange to white&yellow but I don't see many pics of the in between stage :(

    Would love to see how everyone's darwins started as a baby and grew up :)

    This is how mine started(first) and is currently :) (second)

    She had a bit of problems shedding hence the bath. She's been a delight .. just measuring around 50+cm atm her colors haven't changed much. I love seeing the transition photos :)

    female. I find it really hard to capture the bright orange and highlighter yellow colours of these albinos with my phone camera . Anyone else find this to be the case also ? Will try with my actual camera next shed .

    Most of my snake photos are taken with an old IPhone 5S using Camera+, best to take on overcast day with flash fill in. Young albinos hate sun so impossible to pose them unless in shade. All shots of them in enclosures are indoors with flash, in tubs usually taken outdoors.
    There are a few albinos in the Gallery in my album "Cool Babies" and 3 here showing fluro, it does not develop till they are at least 18 mths old. IMG_6189.jpg DSCN4623.jpg IMG_2025.jpg

    I just got word from my babies breeder that the clutch was hatched on New Year’s Day just putting her under 10 months which is a bit older than I thought (though they were hatchlings when I got her but I guess just under 6months)does this age seem correct? I still need to measure her but she has adhd I tell you! Can’t stay still

    Normal hatch time for Darwins is Oct-Dec but it is not unusual in captivity to go beyond that depending on when they were cooled. I have been experimenting the last 2 years with earlier cooling, bringing the season forward a month each year and I already have some 5 week old hatchlings. I know someone who has been doing this for years and has had Darwins hatch in August.

    Does changing the breeding time affect the clutches at all?

    No, you are just shifting the season forward by providing the appropriate temperature and conditions, the animal does not know any different. You have to do it gradually over 2 - 3 seasons, a month each year. Mine used to all hatch from late Nov to January, This seasons will be Sept to early Nov.
