Hello TFO!

I know it's been awhile since the last update and these two "little" guys have had a serious growth spurt! In fortunately I no longer have a set of scales to weigh these two but I do have shell measurments.

Eros; Male,5 years 4 months, 9-3/4" long, 5-3/4" wide, 5" tall (legs in)






Gaia; Female, 5 years 8 months, 11-3/4" Long, 7-1/2" Wide, 5-1/2" Tall (legs in)






...And here are a few of them side by side Eros is on the bottom/Left...






OK, all that out of the way. I'm not exactly sure when my next Update will for these two but I will be posting a new Update for WalkingRock soon... which will be my last update for WalkingRock.

We will be moving to Palm Desert California in July and Eros and Gaia will be going with us. Because we will be in a retirement community, WalkingRock is not welcome. I will be transferring him to Kellyville OK, to my brothers property... I expect Georgie (his wife) will be posting ALOT of pics once she has him.

OH YAH! Almost forgot.... please note the total lack of bumps or pyramiding... STILL at 0%! Also, it should be noted that I have not applied Vita-Shell in almost a year.

Just goes to show, proper conditions to allow proper shell development for the first few years reflects in a good, solid shell construction for the rest of their lives.

I'm in the Bixby area, I think we talked about that before. I wouldn't mind going to see the big guy someday.

They look great of course. Glad they can come with you. Sorry Walking Rock can't, too sad. But it sounds like he will have a great home. Tell his new parents we would love updates of him. Specially how he is getting along in his new home when the time comes.

Why thank you! Cathie is already missing the Rock but she knows it is best for him after all, he will have his own piece of a "Family Estate" and provisions that will make it his permanent home for the rest of his natural life span. Win-Win for all!
