Looks great! Is he growing? This is a great thread and one I expect I'll need to use sooner or later.

Unless my measurements are off, he's grown by 1cm and 50g since he arrived, from an original 10cm and 125g.

Jamie which flavor of the Reptilinks do you feed? Thinking about trying them out. Thanks in advance.

I built a wholesale-sized order for the discount and the free shipping, and because I've got a chest freezer... I split my order between the mega-blend and the mega-blend with fruits and veggies.

Normally I just look to see if there's white growth lines between the shell plates to tell. Good to see this growth anyway.

200g today!

This has been a goal of mine ever since he came to live with me (at 125g), and I'm really excited about it, especially as the bath I gave him before the weigh-in was full of poop, and he dropped a couple more while I was rinsing him on the way to the scale (suggesting that he's not holding any excess/false grams of weigh inside him).

Anyway, I'm psyched that he's crossed this line.

Nelson came to live with me almost 9 months ago and although the turnaround was a long time coming, he's getting healthier day by day, has doubled his weight (from 125g to 250g) and has increased his length to 12cm.

When he came to live with me he was very underweight as a result of parasites, dehydration, improper diet, and questionable caretaking practices.

I'm very happy with his progress, and happy that we found each other.
