These two came out with very different looking carapaces and subdued coloration on their skin.Odd,but I like this look.

I'm very pleased with the colors and symmetry of patterns that came out in these.

They're all beautiful, but I can't imagine taking care of all those babies. I go crazy with just the two that I have. I love the two with the odd coloration.

Looks like some healthy, yummy food. Were the odd two from the same parents as the others?

"Happy two month birthday to you...." :D good thing they can't hear my actual singing, as I can't carry a tune. :D I think the two odd ones are among my three favorites, too. Love how each one looks just a bit different.

Seriously. I don't think they could look any better. The whole lot of them are just perfect. Thanks for the pics.
