Cinnamon had grown so much and her colours have become darker. She will he 2 months old on the 10th March. Today we welcomed a new baby named Nutmeg! I can't believe Cinnamon was this tiny! They grow so fast!View attachment 271415View attachment 271416View attachment 271417View attachment 271418
My baby angulate is looking the exact same as cinnamon (angulates can have darker, redder, lighter shells etc) how much does Cinnamon weigh/what's her length in cm? Just wondering :)

Cinnamon will be 2 months old on the 10th May (I made a mistake on my original post) she is 6cm and weighs 36.12 grams. How old is your baby?

Oh wow!!! I also thought she was growing extremely fast!! Natural diet of succulents, weeds and grass. She was 5cm when hatched. Bizarre
Do u measure from head to tail, when i measure tortilla he usually has his head a little in, so with his head out fully he would be 5cm

The pictures are fantastic, but they should never live as a pair. Groups of babies might work for a while, but never a pair. The little one will have a tough time if it stays in that enclosure. In the one pic where they are face to face, that is a really bad sign. They will both be much happier as the sole kings/queens of their very own castles and territories.

Hi Tom
I actually placed them like that myself... oops.. They take no note of each other for now and dont seem to be bothered with one another at all. I will keep an eye out on them to make sure there is no trouble and then take it from there.
