Hi Everyone!

Another year has passed and so I took growth comparison pictures. I love these, because it really make me realize how much she has grown. And Luka has grown a lot. It's starting to get difficult picking her up with one hand - she's big and heavy!

So from May 2011 she went from this:
2" and 30g

to this in July 2013:
6" and 700g
It's the same plastic box btw.

This was her in August 2012, so she has grown quite a bit last year:

Aaand compared to my hand:




Now she has pyramided a bit as well since last year. Here's the comparison:

August 2012

July 2013

It looks normalish to me (for an Indian Star anyways). If it isn't though, please let me know.

Two really good words to hear when speaking of a tort :D and they are absolutely beautiful...

Thanks for the update!

Thank you all! I can't wait for her to grow biiiiiiiiiiigger and heaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavier :D
It's so cool to compare them to the same object in each picture. I thought reptiles would grow slower :D

@CL Moss - those two are insanely beautiful! I love Becky. She is so beautiful, cute and she has grown a lot! Well, they both have - its amazing!

I haven't been to the forum in years. But here's an update on Luka. She's 10 years old now, around 10 inches long. Big, heavy, beautiful.
