    What a lovely pattern from one of my 4 hatchlings. He/she is 3 months old. It is always a joy to see them grow up with smooth carapace and healthy.

    Salspi i soak them all about 15 min. in warm water it also encourage defecation to see whether there is not loose stool etc. when they though start to bet busy walking around I'll take them out in their enclosure. I also had moist paper towel in the beginning when they were very little.
