>>Vichris how are you doing? That is an awesome awesome looking set up you have and those little deserts are perfect looking. I am patiently waiting to see if any of my adults survived this brutal winter. I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old that I kept inside over winter that are really eating well lately.

Thanks, I'm doing good Jeffery....LOL. Lets hope that yours dug in deep. Probably at least another month until they appear?? Have you ever had some that didn't make it through the winter?

My hatchlings from last year have been "chowing down" really well also. I started using a lot of pumpkin and sweet potato mixed in with my "turtle balls". It really seems to help with eye issues.

As of today I now have 4 adults up from hibernation. 3 females and 1 male. We've had highs in the mid 60's and lows in the lower 40's and upper 30's. Spring is starting to get sprung.

This female (bottom) was the first one up this year.
