Now that Varys is gone, I guess it's time to start a journal for her babies. (Wonder where we got that idea? ) The original thread for Varys and our experiences during her brooding period and the subsequent hatch can be found here. (3/31/08) The babies are now 1 month old and continue to eat live mysids as well as frozen mysids and cyclopeeze. There have been no signs of death so we assume there are still about 10 total, but it's hard to find more than about 6 or 7 at any given time. We pulled our Sony Handycam with Nightshot (near IR) out of storage and have been having a ball watching the babies' antics in the dark. Over spring break we put together a 5 minute video compilation of them hunting and exploring, but it's kinda big (~47MB) so be warned. There's also a shorter clip (~5MB) of one hunting for those with less patience. The longer clip shows a number of interesting "behaviors". Heh.
