I don't know how I missed this. They are beautiful. I expected your older ones to ,look awful. I remember you saying before that you don't like to show them. Well, I think they are gorgeous. I get that they are pyramided, but still gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. It's always fun and educational reading your threads.:)

OK Folks! Don't get too carried away over the swimming sulcata phenomenon. This ability dissipates once they get to about 10 pounds or so! Sorry to burst your bubble!

...and no filament wire to give the illusion that she's swimming. As you well know...ALL of my babies are (were) swimmers until they hit 10 pounds...then they 'walk' on the bottom!

Love the pics! My fiance thinks the babies in the tubs look like ladybugs. :) He thought they were adorable. He's still ambivalent toward Myrtle, but I think the baby pics helped bring him around some.

Yes. Because males don't get along with each other, while females usually coexist just fine.

That didn't work out. They went back to the breeder. Long story.

This is my super awesome love button... Your torts make me realize how much I would love more but your explanation of how you got a few of them helps me understand why Willie is an only tort child.. We don't have space right now to give more a better home... :<(!
