Thats kind of what happened with Suki too. She was really white/beige in her stripes and as she's matured they have turned a really kinda muddled down red/yellow.

Part of the joys of raising them, seeing how they grow :)

Wilbur finally is letting me hold him without scrambling. He looked out the window for a bit while I got some pictures. He finally finished shedding today. He looks more orange than before, and he's so chonky!

Crazy how different his colors can look in different lighting. In some light he takes on a maroon tint, and in others he's a blazing orange/red. I think they're about 4.5 months old now? I believe in the beginning of April they'll be a full 5 months.

He is definitely a red tone -- and when absorbing heat they go darker -- Blaze is a wiblet / red translucent and his coloring changes daily as well ---

With CandyCane the color changing is much more noticeable. Idk if it's because she's translucent or the witblit but she can change from minute to minute. Wilbur it is much harder to notice. His beard is turning yellow too now. They're very interesting to watch even while they're in their enclosure. Hopping from branch to hammock, etc.

That's fantastic! I was so worried that nothing was going to be right but I'm so glad I found this forum. Everything seems to be working great.

CandyCane seems to be letting me know when she will tolerate handling (I am assuming lol). She comes up to the glass and watches, and I’ll open the glass and she will just stay there for pets and hand feedings. It’s either that or she has pooped and wants it cleaned lol.

She really does! Her head is really triangular now. I guess she’s lost all that baby roundness finally. She’s prob 16/17 inches long based on how she lays out on the tiles. She’s in shed too at the moment. What’s crazy is when she’s in shed she takes on a pink/maybe color. I’ll have to get a better picture of it.

She's adorable! It does look like she has a pink tint but I figured it was just the lighting.
So glad your babies are doing well. 🤗

That’s great she is so communicative! 16/17 inches at 5 months seems so crazy... Intellectually I know that’s going to happen with Mario, but seeing it from you first hand has been a trip!!

How have the kids been doing with them now they have extra time?

They've been great. I plan on getting them some kind of holding blanket for them for Easter so they can watch movies and hold them. Or hold them while I clean the enclosures and such.

Wilbur always makes his way around the bowl, going slowly like a predator and peeking over the top, going back down and around a bit more, then choosing a spot to eat from for a few minutes before repeating the process lol.

I love how orange her legs are. I'm curious to see how orange her back will be after this shed.

:lol: Wilbur cracks me up with the way he's hanging off that branch to eat!

I'm sure the kids will love watching movies with them. We had Mario in a tub with his murder pit and half log hide during Lord of the Rings for a bit last weekend. He seemed confused but also highly entertained by the TV!
