2018 is already busy! Many of the lizards are already pairing and getting ready for the 2018 season. Retics, ball pythons, and carpet pythons are locking up. We've had funky (unusually warm) weather this winter so it is no surprise the northern blue tongues (Tiliqua scincoides intermedia) are a bit late this season, but as of this last week a few more females began acting receptive. This bring the total blueys paired so far this year to include northerns (T. s. intermedia), Meruke (T. gigas evanescens), Irian Jayan (T. sp.), and Kei isles (T. g. keyensis). Hopefully the classic Indos (T. g. gigas) and Tanimbar (T. s. chimera) blueys start pairing soon! And as always, spiders are still going strong.
