2011 Alabama Tessera F1 clutch (SMR Okeetee Tessera X WC Alabama)

Here is part of the Mica/Taz clutch (Tara has the others). I have six of the babies in house, one of which is *literally* in house.

Mica07T (Tessera) escaped from me on 6/30, as I was cleaning (his) bin. He flew out & before I could catch him, he ended up on the floor, went behind the rack & went under the molding where it meets the carpet. (He-I think he's a male) is one of the non feeders. He had refused five meals offered, prior to escaping. (Maybe he knew that tube feeding was next).

I really hope he turns up (alive), but the odds are not good.
I have named him "Indiana" for Indiana Jones.

Here are the other 5 I have.
First is Mica01T (I think is a female)-this one is sentimental to me, because (she) is the first baby I have bred & hatched.
Next is Mica02AZ (I think is a female)-one of the three Aztec patterned babies, that we are calling "Taztecs". The Tessera gene has an effect on the pattern, without actually being a Tessera.
Then there is Mica03N (I think is a female) who has great borders, very pretty coloring coming out & a little bit of patterning.
Here is Mica10M(is a male) that has a bit of a Motley patterning, & this is the one with an "X" on the head. This was one of the non feeders. He refused 5 meals, & then I tube fed him twice, very small amounts since he hadn't eaten yet. After the second tube feeding, I left a small pinkie in his bin overnight, & it was gone in the morning! Woot! I skipped feeding him last night because he's starting to turn blue. I hope he continues to eat. (Fingers crossed).
One more Tessera, is Mica12T(I think *hope* this one is a male).
This one has been a better eater for me.

The theory of why so many of this clutch are problem feeders is possibly because mom was WC (captive the past 4-5 years).

Look how different the tessera's are in color vs. the Taztec and the one underneath. Would be neat to chart color variations in Tessera clutches with normals, if only to see if tessera alters colors as well as patterns.

Awesome looking clutch...Wow, your first hatchling was a tessera? Way to set the bar, Heather!

Hey Heather, congrats on that clutch. It will be interesing to see how they turn out with the Bama color influence.

Looking forward to seeing progression on them.

Walter,

Does the first miss a scale on its nose?

I will be using this thread as a progression thread, so you guys can see how they grow up.

Thanks Chris!

Thanks Walter! I have a feeling the F2's are going to be where we see the real Bama influence.

Do you mean the white on the nose? If so, not, that's just the markings....cool, huh?

I've taken notice of how the Tessera genetics seems to affect the non-Tesseras in a clutch.. From observations it seems to enhance the depth and distinction between colors. The animals seem brighter, sharper and better defined. It's as though Tessera improves the looks of normal siblings as well. I sold some normal siblings last year and the buyers have brought them back for me to see. They are growing into handsome snakes. They stand out among their non Tessera influenced cousins. It will be a fun thing to follow.
Congrats on a great clutch!

Terri

I meant the spot in between those four cream colored scales on the nose of the first one, it looks like there is an empty space to me.

Thanks Terri! I have noticed that too with these two clutches. I will keep a couple sibs to see how they turn out, & will probably do some test breeding with them as well.

Ah, Blutengel, I think it's lighting.
