    I've had Elijah for nearly 11 years now. He's just got up from a short hibernation, still a bit sleepy and needs to be put in his proper home later today when I'm sure he's ok. 20180306_180718.jpg

    She fits in the palm of my hand but she's probably about 2 1/2 inches long. She's a baby

    Sorry, it's hard to tell from your picture. Elijah is now 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. I think he's about 12 years old.

    Ginger (Hermann's) is a baby too, he/she is so small. Still can't seem to tell the gender.

    Thank you. He's lovely. At the moment he's a bit grumpy that I got him up but he'll be fine in a day or two. He has a soak every day when he first wakes up, which he really enjoys.

    I find Elijah likes a little stroke under his chin My sulcata likes his head stroked, he's just a year old. Enjoy your living dinosaur.

    He's only just over a year and send to be a slow grower but he will be huge in a few years time. I'm really excited to watch him grow.
