It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

And it's not even Christmas! Well, maybe it is for me. It's the time of year I check cages almost hourly when I'm home, looking for baby eyelash vipers! Two litters have been born so far this week, one from a tiger and these little beauties from a solid lemon yellow. The one in front is the spitting image of his/her mother! These were born during the day, yesterday. When I got home from work around 1 pm, four were crawling about the cage. By the time I returned from physical therapy (another blog to come) around 3, there were nine moving about. The final count appears to be an even dozen but I've yet to move them from their birth cage. One or two more could easily be hiding under the leaves or even under the water bowl.

So cute! It is adorable how they are cuddled up together. I hope watching your babies hatch is keeping your mind off of your aching back.
Kyle is coming home late tonight to spend the weekend with us. (Actually he is coming so he and Sam can go to the car races tomorrow, seeing his parents is secondary!) Maybe he will have time to post on his blog.
