PostSubject: The little turtles are home!   Mon Aug 27, 2012 5:30 am

Jack moved the rest of his stuff back over last night, he still has like two small boxes or so to bring back but for the time being my room is literally stacked up with boxes that need to be moved up the loft Rolling Eyes he bought the four small turtles back with him. We've got the Ouachita map turtle (Stan) and the three musk turtles (Squishy is the fully grown one, Squirt is catching up and Karl is still tiny)! I haven't been to Jack's in a while due to 'misunderstandings' with his family, so he's been looking after them there. We haven't moved our big yellow bellied slider over yet because there's nowhere to put her tank, we're taking her when we move home though Very Happy

Being as I haven't seen them for about two months, if a little bit more, I'm SUPER shocked to see how much they have all grown! Squishy was half the size of that last time I saw him and was only about the size of a 50p coin when we got him! Then there's Squirt, who is catching up but they were from the same clutch who we bought at the same time as Squishy and they were the same size! Unebelievable. I think we only bought them towards the end of last year as hatchlings. Then we have Karl, the smallest who we bought quite a few months back and he has grown a tiny bit but not a lot and nowhere near as fast as the others have. The most shocking for me though is Stan the Ouachita map. He was smaller than the musks when we first got him! He was PUNY! But now he's just as big as Squishy Shocked

Here they all are in the container coming home

I know he's still not huge, but he is honestly triple if not more the size he was when we got him

I'm sorry about the picture quality, my DSLR isn't charged up so I'm making my phone work hard, and my phone has a fantastic camera! But only in good lighting Crying or Very sad

Well, Ouachita maps tend to get quite big. I'd say about the size of a male RES
