It's been 1 year since I found out frank was infested with parasites. At that time he was almost 2 years old and only 130 grams and 3.5 inches. Today he is 6 inches and 600 grams. He's doing great living outside grazing and getting lots of sunshine, he only comes inside to sleep.

I agree, looks great. I love the straight on face pic. Sometimes they look grumpy, like my leopard Tatum, sometimes they look like they are smiling.

Glad to see Frank doing so well. The new growth looks to be smooth.

It's been a while so here's an update on Frank. Although still small for 3 years old he is really growing now nearing 800 grams. Here is 3 picks spread out over the last 3 weeks.

Cute tort. I had similar startings with my tort. My tort clarice is now 14 months. I haven't weighed her in a while but she is growing fast. ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1413162093.768169.jpgImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1413162115.366447.jpgImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1413162134.867359.jpg
