    Crichton's first shed -- dial-uppers beware

    Well little Crichton shed last night...One beautiful, perfect piece!
    Here it is: it measures 61.5 cm, so we estimate that would make him about 50cm +/-.
    Here's the skin and some post shed pics...

    We took him out for some pics and to weigh him. He was absolutely calm, just curiously cruising all around me and here on Martin's arm. In this pic you can really see the pink, black and white coloring of the tail which the use as a worm-like lure to attract lizards and amphibians which the juveniles eat in the wild:

    Here we sprayed him lightly with water and he tucked his nose in... just leaving one eye to peak out... so cute! :p
    You can see how the water drops really stand up on the post-shed skin.

    LMAO Steve! Actually I'm looking forward to his color change. (I hope he ends up looking something like Brent's GTP: "Gnome"!! :D
    Deltro_star: I think the colors are starting to change: If you look carefully at the last picture, you can see a greenish tinge just between his eyes and then almost at the same level, one coil over to the right, there's another. :confused:
    They usually start to change color somewhere between 6 and 8 months and the process takes anywhere between 15 days and 15 months!! :rolleyes:
    He's a rather small 10 month old, so he should be starting sometime soon. We'll keep you posted with pics! :D
    Thanks Dark Magician. My husband took most of the pics with his Sony Cybershot DSC-F828. It has 8 megapixels -- that's why we can make the pics so big and crop them so close and still have a clear pic. (It's a great camera... and great to have such a good photographer using it!!!) :)
