Here is a pic of one of my radiated, she has a beautiful bulbous shell. She has been on quite a growing spurt and is really starting to develop some very yellow skin

She looks great.
I was going to make a bowling comment but Kelly beat me to it!

Roly poly and super beautiful. You have done a great job. A little work of art! : )

A little work of art, I guess you are right. I never realized you were right here in Orange County

Very nice indeed. Do you happen to have a side profile too?

I love the shape of her shell as well athletically, but just curious, how will males manage to get on her if this type of growth keeps up? Also, do you know if she can flip herself over if she somehow ended up on her back (obviously please don't try it to find out). I'm always worried about mine flipping over and not being able to right itself and it's much smaller and not nearly high domed.

She has been flipped on her back from my other female. As far as her being able to flip back on her feet, the answer to that would probably be
no. Unless she was around a bunch of weeds or brush and able to grab ahold with her feet. I have had these guys flip each other about 6 or 7 times and they never got to their feet. Luckily i was able to help them before it was to late. They have not been flipping each other anymore though. The males get big like the females so mounting I dont think will be a problem. Thanks for the compliments, I will try to find a side view
