Hello my friend! I hope you all are doing well, as well as your turtles and tortoises. Unfortunately, I haven't been on the Forum regularly for some time now, Dexter and I are doing good.

Dexter is a big kid now. He Turn 4 in March. He weighs in at around 40 pounds and is about 17 inches long the last time I measured. I changed his outside area quite a bit comma extending the width by 2 feet, which helped with his continual growth. Here some pictures of him, enjoy!

As for myself, I've been busy, to say the least. In January, I got married. Within the last few months I finished College, receiving my credential in mild moderate and moderate severe special education. Wahoo! My wife and I build a raised garden bed, which is 150 square feet. I'll try to attach some other pictures as well.

Congrats!

Why can't Dexter have the whole yard? (Not being judgemental...just wondering)

I let him out everyday to graze on the lawn. But, I own a dog and he needs the yard as well. Dexter also tends to walk and drag things in the yard, like my barbeque. So that's why I'll let him out when I'm home. He has a burrow that almost 2 people can fit into, his insulated house, food and water at all times to keep him content.
