    Just my two cents... I've worked with Casey for years, both buying & selling, and as anyone who's been involved long enough in this hobby knows, not all transactions will work out as expected. However, what truly matters in the end is that persons honor/integrity, whether the responsible person...

    1) Two young adult Tlitocatl vagans females - both are exceptional proven breeders - $700 (for both girls). These girls are by far the most fertile I have ever worked with. T. vagans #5 is her first year breeding, and T vagans #2 is her second year. T vagans #5 produced 909 slings this month...

    I’ll be counting them when they turn 2i in about 3 weeks. I suspect by the size of her egg sac, it will be around the same as she did last year, approximately 1200 slings!

    My T. vagans super mom laid another huge sac this year - pulled and opened on 7-11-20. She may have outperformed herself from last year when she produced an amazing 1215 slings!

    It is actually a relatively easy process for me - I usually wholesale my slings to Michael from Island Sea Exotics, Mount Dora, Florida. I've worked with him for several years now and he is very professional and easy to work with. The hardest part is counting them, which can take some time due...

    Did my final sling count on my young first year breeder T. vagans (female #5). Pictured is one of the 909 2i slings she produced! Will pull my second egg sac this year from my other girl (female #2) this week who produced 1215 slings last year...

    Really nice living environment you made for these guys - they will do well in your care! Don’t forget to consistently wet a small area around the water bowl once a week to maintain a higher humidity level. This species is found in a more humid tropical environments from the Mexican Yucatán...
