    Not updated in a while truth is nothing's really been happening. Still no further for a sex for Robin still too small however Robins growth line is coming on GREAT! S/he is now at 70g. Decided not to hibernate this year maybe next time anyway here's a few photos to keep anyone who wants a nosey updated.

    So 2 days ago my partner told me Robin had managed to get some substrate in her eye. She ensured me she had got it out and gave Robin a soak. Today I notice she wasn't opening one eye but there was some calci powder round it. I've rinsed it off and gave her a nice long warm soak. Will this be ok?

    So it has been a LOONG time since I've been on here. A lot of personal stuff going on starting university and the usual things that crop up. Robin was weighed today to 92g and is only measuring approx 8.5cm in length that's just the shell. S/he is turning 5 this year I'm just wondering is this what I should expect or if s/he should be a bit bigger?


    I promise I'll upload some new pics tomorrow

    No need for a filter on Robin ever! I love how Robins colours come out in the sun. We decided to take real advantage of the lovely weather we had today and spent it in the garden.
