Hi everyone. Thank you for all the positive thoughts and prayers. My mom passed away at 3AM yesterday. It has been a very difficult time and I am glad to know such wonderful supportive people. I do come on TFO every week and check out the threads so I am not completely gone but I have been very...
So it has been exactly one year since I got my lovely Nova when I first got her she was just under 6in and now she is just under 6.5in! She has also grown from 530g to 673g! I don't know if her growth is going at the right rate or not but she seems to be thriving. There is only one negative I...
Haha I've been mostly lurking but I finally decided to stop being lazy and put some pictures up :P she is getting so big! And the name Nova means chasing butterflies and she has to scutes on her back that for a butterfly so I thought it was fitting :)
Hi Everyone! I havent been here on awhile do to starting school up again but her are some recent pictures of my Nova :)
She loves making fun of me :P
She loves her rubs :D
Also I will be putting a video up at some point haha
Until I complete Nova's full outdoor enclosure I through together a simple one because I had a feeling she was getting all depressed in her cage because she didn't spend as much time as she would like outside. I will still bring her in at night because it doesn't have a top but for the day time...

Nova trying to escape (:
She's a big girl (:

So I woke up this morning and found a huge mess in Nova's cage as usual. I have to refresh her water dish about 5 times a day because she loves to get it all dirty! For a second I couldn't find Nova but eventually I did ;)
Did you find her...
Well the first thing I noticed is your new torts big gorgeous eyes so I thought of names that means eyes or something so here is a list
Hitomi (means "pupil of the eye" and "beautiful" in Japanese)
Naira (means "big eyes" in Quechua)
Europa (means "wide eye" in Greek)
Daisy (means "day's eye")...
