This is So, The Smaller One, who is now bigger than Bo. They're 10 years old this year and turns out they're both male.

I have a friend that has 2 big Aldabs. I'll find out one is a female. Doesn't it take Aldabs 15 years to mature?

In my case, it was about 9 years. But I think its more size than age. Bo showed me his stuff last year and So just a couple weeks ago. They're both a little over 100lbs, so I would say that the males are probably sexually mature right at around 100lbs. It takes the females longer.

Well, I know pyramiding isn't good for their health, but some species actually do look like artists' sculptures with their peaks and slopes.

Like So. ;)

He is so fat and chubby Yvonne. They always looks so calm. Kind of makes a Sulcata look small doesn't it? :D Is this one still considered a baby or not?

Well, maybe not quite a "baby" but still pretty young at only 10 years.
