Here's a couple pictures showing the ridges on Pip's plastron. Is this normal or do we need to be worried? He's one of the turkish greeks that we got from Danny last august. The one other has some ridges, too, but not as noticeable.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

The growth looks normal to me :D There is a bit of wear on the new growth, but thats all I see.

Thanks for taking a look, Danny. Normal is good news :) We've been tracking their weight and they have really grown . . . recently they both increased their weight 4g in two weeks! Maybe too much growth? Will try and post some updated regular photos of the two after school today when the kids can help me with the pictures again.

That's a perfectly normal weight gain for their size. I would be expecting around 10g a month weight gain. Also the bigger they get the bigger the weight gain per month should be. :D
