    Here are my two girls out in the backyard today, first time in 2018 due to the cold spring. They are about 3-4 years old.

    Beautiful girls. How big are they? They look like Sri Lankan stars.

    Wow! The thick yellow banding is fantastic. I can never decide if I prefer lots of thin yellow lines radiating out, or fewer, wider lines. Are those two the same ones in your avatar picture?

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I believe they are Sri Lankens and they are a little bigger than a 16" softball. They love it outside when the weather is good.

    I haven't weighed them but they are about the size of a 16' softball, maybe a little bigger. There are as healthy as can be and two of the three males are showing breeding behavior.
