    Weekly update: Mazuri is runnning out of stock, and this is the impact. He is doing fine, it just.. no extra boost. You know.. it is like when McDonald is suddenly stop operating :p:p. And this is the weight after poop. Hmm...

    Weekly update: despise having weight loss, he is very active. Maybe because this is the weight after poop (unusual weight time pattern). So still have nothing to worry about. Still no mazuri :D

    Weekly update: Despise showing slow growth, he is very active. Nothing to worry about. Still no mazuri. The weather is cooler, and makes his enclosure cooler than usual, just a bit.

    I don't have winter here. His appetite is very very good. All behavior looks more and more healthy now. And more outgoing too. Bigger of course which i am very exciting about.

    Update: since i decided his bigger pal, Toro, a Sulcata, will have weight update once a month. I think this one will get the same treatment.
    One of the purposes of weekly update is to monitor the health. I think Turbo's health is quite good now. I had a feeling of "he is not so fragile now" when i looked at my sulcata when he reached 1,000gr. I have this feeling too with Turbo now. Their face just looks... a bit mature? Lol.
    So.. expect to see his weight update once a month between the end of the month and the beginning of the new month. Still no Mazuri, and this really messed up with his weight gain.

    Turbo’s growth rate seems to be in line with my Kaci. She just broke the 1,000 gram mark as well. Look forward to your updates!

    Update: Sorry guys, too busy. I weighted him at 8 Feb and forgot to post it. He is doing really fine and super healthy. Usual him, not much to report except getting bigger, smoother, and rounder. He is more outgoing now, still skittish if playing outdoor, not much in his indoor enclosure. His skittish behavior is lessen a lot though.
