    This is what really rocks my boat about being in this hobby.
    I love hatching day, the beginnings of new life, seeing these perfect little creatures take their first breath. All the feeding, cleaning, planning and everything else that goes into this amazing conclusion. The beginning of a new generation that I was fortunate enough to have a hand in.

    Congratulations Paul, I understand exactly what you're feeling and it does not matter how many times you do it the feeling is the same. It never ceases to amaze me how fully ready to go they are straight out of the egg.

    Thanks mate. In some cases its a culmination of several years of bringing animals up from hatchies to seeing their 1st offspring appear from the egg. Something I never tire of seeing.

    Thanks so much guys. Makes me happy to share my joy's with you.
    We are so lucky to be a part of this amazing hobby, lets keep looking towards the positives of it instead of the eternal bickering that we keep seeing the hobby.

    Hands down the best juvenile camouflage I have seen in a reptile yet! The way it is sitting in your hand Paul creates an amazing optical illusion.
