Default UK FIRST!!!! CBB Black tree monitor!!!!!

After alot of investigation i have a UK first breeding of black tree monitors!!!

As some of you may know over the last few years i have been attempting to incubate the eggs from my breeding pair, after 3 failed attempts due to various reasons i decided to keep things on a down low.

I had a clutch of 4 eggs laid, within the first few weeks one died and was disposed of. The remainding 3 eggs all looked good and healthy over the last 6 months.... i must say the wait has been unbearable. but i finally hit the jack pot!

Yesterday one of the 3 eggs had slit, i left it over night to its own devices and by the morning not much else had happened so i moved it into a seperate box in the incubator first on vermiculite then onto tissue paper, By this evening at 8pm the little one had decided to finally leave the little egg home of his/hers.

Now for the pictures!!!

More pictures will be added over the next few days/weeks as he goes on
