How old is she? Is she one of your grandbabies?

Or was she raised with sulcatas, and thinks she's one of them? [emoji2]
~ She was imported originally by Life Fellowship and one of there top breeders at there program in the 80's. I purchased her from a petting zoo, her age is unknown, she is well over a hundred. She actually is one of our top egg layers and produces high volumes per clutch, typically ranging from 16 to 19 per clutch. She prefers grass, weeds and cactus over hay, fruit or anything else.

You think her very small size is just a quirk of nature?
