    Here is an update on Torterra she is now 1 year and 3 months old and is a whopping 565g and 5 and 1/4 in long. She is now in a 6X3 enclosure (for now) that we built ourselves. IMG_1543279338.616181.jpg

    Yeah I got caught up in work then got laid off and kinda went silent on social media for a month. I’m back to work now so I’m doing a little better. Torterra is getting huge tho lol. She seems to be on a growth spurt and is gaining nearly 100g a month.

    Hey guys,
    My app stopped working, and I didn't know why until I hopped on today and checked the thread about it. I hope another is made. Anyway, since the last time we talked, I lost my job and got another, moved cross country AGAIN, and I bought a house. I will be finishing my associate's degree this month, and I'm about halfway done with my bachelor's. Torterra is confirmed as a Female, and she is getting a boyfriend this Thursday (he's to old for her right now and will be housed separately). How are y'all?
