I'm a Mommy Again!! Everyone Meet Ember & Introducing Kai!!

About a month ago I went to check out a clutch of babies at my local reptile store. I wasn't ready, but wanted to look. They were gorgeous! Fast forward to today, I called them and was told they only had one left. Was it a sign? Was this the one meant to be mine? I decided to go after work to see if it was still there and sure enough it was! Needless to say, I'm a new mommy!

I asked to hold it and as the owner of the shop took it out I asked if he could tell if it was male or female. He checked and is pretty sure it's a female. So for now, she's a she. A few seconds after I got her she licked my sweater and I was sold. I just adore that behavior.

On the ride home, she pooped in the container we were sent home with so I had to pull over to change the paper towel. When I got her home I put her right in her viv and she started moving around almost instantly. She started on the cool side, but quickly made her way over to the basking side. She also ate 20 phoenix worms for me.

She's very alert and seems to be very curious. She's been watching me and the dogs like a hawk every time we walk by her. One of the workers at the store said he was very surprised she was there so long and that she's a little ham. I can't wait until she's all settled in.

As for names, I really like Ember and Cinder, but I haven't decided officially yet. :)

Here are some pics.

OMGOSH She is so cute! I love her colors and everything about her she is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!!!!!!!! For her name i am just calling her a her for now but i love the name Ember.
 
Congratulations!
And she's BEAUTIFUL!
I'm going to steal her 8)

I personally like both names, but Ember seems to suit her.
That's just my opinion, though.

Oh, she is adorable. Love her coloring and the name EMBER really suits her. Sounds like she is settling in quite nicely for her 1st day in her new home. :p

You take great pictures, so nice & clear. She is very photogenic and looks like she actually enjoyed it.

Congratulations.

Thanks guys! She is beautiful. I had my heart set on a citrus (yellow) leatherback when I set out looking, but in the end she was too adorable to walk away from. It feels like she was meant to be the one. :)

It’s only been a few hours, but she’s doing pretty well. She was very curious about her new home and explored a little bit. She watches me and the dogs like a hawk when we move around the room. I did try to pick her up a couple of times just long enough to say hi so she’ll start getting used to me, but she kept trying to jump back to her cave so I let her be. I know it’s all new to her and it’ll take some time so I’m not going to rush her and make things worst. I’ll be happy when she realizes I’m momma though! :)

Funny thing. I forgot to set the timers to the lights so I did that a little while ago. When the lights went out she clearly wasn’t ready for lights out (last 2 pics)! She fell asleep like this. I just moved her before I go to bed so she doesn’t accidentally fall.

Here are some more pics.

What a sweetie! Sometimes we don't get to pick them; they pick us. Personally, I like it better that way.
Congratulations!

She is just precious. Guess she liked clinging onto the vent, good thinking moving her from that spot though when she fell sleep there.

She should be very happy with that setup, looks very nice. She has a lot of climbing choices. What is on the back wall, it looks textured & very interesting.

I painted the interior of the viv with the non toxic paint. I did a layer of one solid color and then I sponged a 2nd layer to give it texture. It's sealed with non toxic sealant. :)

Well, it was, but then I painted it different shades of brown when Dewey was here. After losing Dewey I had to give it a new look for the new baby. So I stripped it and repainted it. :)

Again, great job. I have a melamine tank and have been trying to figure out how to make it more decorative, you have some great ideas.

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
