All 2020 babies are sold!
Please contact me at — email@example.com — if you are interested in possibly buying babies in 2021. I have added 6 additional females to my colony and they should all be ready to breed this February. Several are from European lineages unrelated to U.S. stock.
My main focus is on producing large healthy babies and I prefer to use diverse lineages to do that. Of course, I’m also trying to select for bold colors but never at the cost of the health of the skink. Excessive inbreeding of related animals can potentially lead to genetic problems and diminished vitality.
After these babies are gone that will be it. I am hoping to sell these locally in Northern California around 12th of August. I can also ship from Monterey, CA. around that same date.

I am adding photos of this year’s babies regularly so check back often. Photos of the first three litters are posted below. Last litter were photographed on 6/29/20.
Northern BT babies start out rather dark and it is only after several sheds that you can begin to get a sense of their eventual colors and patterns. Patterns begin to be discernible before the adult colors.
The mother’s colors and patterns are probably the best indicator of what babies will look like as adults. (I typically use 2 males as breeders with each female so it is not always clear which is the father of any individual.)
You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to buy one or have questions about them.
Elektra’s babies are entering their second shed and I posted photos below. Here they are eating a cat food concoction a couple of days after their birth.
As of 6/29/20 — most of Elektra’s babies have been sold. A couple of Selena babies are left; several Athena and Cybele babies are left from the last 2 litters.
Unfortunately, these babies from Elektra were just going into their second shed when I took their photos on June 1st. They are a little darker during the shed but will come out looking much sharper and bolder when they slough off the old skin.
These three are ready to go to new homes and they are labeled E1, E2 and E3. All are about 9-inches in length now. These 3 older babies are $350 each.
This is baby E2. Also, just going into its second shed.
Sibling E3 is about the same size as its two siblings.
Selena’s younger mob, half of which are pictured below, are on the verge of their first shed. I’ve added photos below of 2 babies that are both ready to go. (Several have already sold.)
Selena’s babies are $300 each. I have two other younger litters — less than a week old as of June 1st. They need another week or two of feeding to get them ready to go. They are also $300 each. I’ll add photos after their first shed.
Selena’s babies, labeled as S1 & S2. They are ready to go. Just under two weeks of age when these photos were taken. They’ve just shed once. Both are just under 8 inches in length.
Athena’s babies were born on the 25th and they are still small and dark at the moment. In about a week or so I can photograph them as well. Cybele produced a small litter on May 29th. Waiting on one other female.
Here are photos taken on June 29th of Athena’s babies.
