    To continue showing off some of my animals, here are my two female Barbour's Maps (Graptemys barbouri). I've got a full photo history from hatchling to now on our website.

    As of 10/10/12

    This is Rosie. She continues to grow well, is 2 years old now and measured in at 4 3/4" SCL, 4 3/8" PL, 251g.

    Thanks, Robyn. Took some time, since they don't always want to cooperate! (especially for head shots!)

    Yeah, I can't get enough of them!

    Me too. I think their diet helps a little bit. I often give them the chance at snails and keep crushed coral in the tank. They also get to eat Hikari Massivore Diet, which is a nice firm pellet right after it goes in the water. They love chomping on that.
