Welcome Baby Agnes!


Last week we went to the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine to teach a course on basic avian handling and medicine to the second year students.  After dinner, we went with Purdue Exotics Club members to the home of one of the veterinary school professors, where we examined her outstanding collection of prehensile tailed skinks. The colony lives together in several family groups with parents and

young.  We were told female "AJ" was probably pregnant. The very next morning, her owner found this huge fully formed baby, who was named "Agnes".  It's interesting how enormous these youngsters are  at birth (we were told it's equivalent to a human mother delivering a 4-year-old child! Welcome "baby" Agnes!
