    So the new Greek baby appears to be doing well. Eating, pooping and sunning herself. She burrows in at night and comes out when the lights come on in the morning.

    I was watching her sleep this afternoon and noticed she moves her little head and front legs every once in a while. Has anyone seen this before? Is she just breathing? Should I be concerned?

    Yep everything’s normal there, they pump their legs when breathing. Nothing to worry about:)
