@kendall: yup.. though i have a feeling na nagutuman lang sila kaya sila nag-cannibalize.. di ko kasi napakain ng 1 day haha!

gusto ko kasi sila i-raise communally. di un mangyayari pag hiniwalay hiwalay ko. territorial pa naman sila lalo na mga males kaya dapat habang bata palang masanay na sila.

uupdate ko naman kayo sa physical and behavior nila para mainspire kayo magdagdag alaga haha!

Update: 01 / 22 / 2013

- after 27 days nag start na ang 1st ever shed ng mga baby skinks.

- cannibalism became worst than i expected. napilitan ako iseparate sila in the process.

- all 8 baby skinks entered juvenile coloration after 1 month

Casualties:

3 had lost their tails
1 had a broken/wounded leg

territorial kasi sila by nature.. 1st generation pa lang kasi kaya di pa mawawala yung trait na yun

Update: 01/27/13

All 8 juvenile skinks are entering their 2nd skin shed after 32 days since their birth.

Due to hind leg damage caused by cannibalism, i have decided to release 1 juvenile scheduled later this afternoon.
