Our Muppets are doing great. They’re a little confused about this weather. It started to cool off in September, and a couple of them started to dig caves, but then it warmed up again. Their appetites vary with the day-to-day weather, some of them choosing to sleep through their afternoon meal. If it gets overcast or cold, they’ll just burrow into the warmer sand and take a nap. They are still drinking well. These days, they will drink right out of a plastic spoon full of water when offered. It’s quite a ritual.

All eight of our SHLs went to the Vet this week and got a good check-up. They all passed. They should be good to go for hibernation if it ever cools off.

If you reference the photo, these are our Muppets:

1. Ms Piggy 3 ˝ yrs old 69mm SVL 31.3g
2. Janice 2 ˝ 57mm 24.8g
3. Kermit 2 ˝ 47mm 9.6g
4. Gladys 1 ˝ 63mm 26.9g
5. Lolita 1 ˝ 65mm 20.6g
6. Tinker Bell 1 ˝ 60mm 17.9g
7. Cookie Monster 1 ˝ 52mm 11.9g
8. Jon 1 ˝ 48mm 9.8g

That’s right! Number eight is Little Jon, who earlier this year was on death’s doorstep. Little Jon ain’t so little anymore. He’s all growed up. He’s bigger than his Dad, Kermit. That’s him in the second photo, Big Bad Jon.
