This period started with some warm days, but the last days were cooler again and somewhat chilly.
June 27th temperatures was around 17 – 20 ⁰C, skies half overcast.
On this day de large T.radix female shed its skin for the first time.
In a outdoor terrarium you useually cannot fin much skins since they are eaten rapidly by the arthropods.
The large radix female loos radiant,e specially since she has eaten a lot.
Also the smaller T.radix female has shed its skin around June 20th fort eh 1st time. But she has not come out of hibernation in good health and I am not sure if she will make it.
Early June a new male radix was added to the group and he is doing fine and feeding well.
The orange male radix looks good and radiant so I think he has shed its skin as well.
The male pickeringii is basking in the eraly sun, waiting for the sunrays.
One of the sipedon females is basking on the ferns and she looks like she will shed soon.
Nerodia sipedon always starts up later in the season.
