WOW! The color changed so much! He was so much darker as a baby! As his color changed, the contrast on the pattern is detailed, all that black lining! COOL! Nice pictures, he's one beautiful snake!

Thanks! I'm very happy with how he turned out!!

I posted this right after, not sure if you saw it.
There are subtle differences in the hatchling pics between my male Brokk, and Walter Smith's female (pictured in the previous post), and how different they turned out as adults.

That's one of the fun things with producing babies, is seeing how they turn out as adults.

Here is her hatchling pic, after a couple sheds, and as an adult (Walter's photo).

Most of them turned out more like Walter's female.

Don Soderberg has one of the Miami Tessera's from that clutch as well.

When I borrowed Tara's male Tessera, Taz, I thought that since he was an Okeetee Tessera, that it would take at least a couple generations to get a nice, Miami look.

Needless to say, we were very happy to find that the babies looked so Miami in the first generation!

That little hatching looks almost black ... So there's no real way to tell how a baby will grow into adult (just like in the human world), the pattern seems pretty stable, color is more a surprise. If that dark dark hatching turns out to be so colorful, how do you determine which one to hold back from a clutch?

It's easier to tell in person, when looking at the babies.
Sometimes there's just something that catches your eye about. DAI-09, for example, caught my eye, and will be staying with me, at least for a while. There are a few that I think will turn out like the sire, color/sharpness wise.

It's truly fascinating, thanks for explaining it

Apparently I failed to post any more photos of the babies in this thread, but I did start THIS thread, for available babies from this clutch, which have post-shed photos.

Three more to emerge (two Tessera's and one more Miami).
I'm looking forward to their first shed!
This is the one I kept, and I am glad I did! She reminded me of her Sire, Brokk, and she is exceeding my expectations of how I thought she'd turn out!

I finally got around to naming her too. LOL
This is "Echo"
