    Well today is the day that we celebrate Clunker's "birthday". About this time last year Clunker was in the process of hatching. I'm so grateful that he was properly started by @Tom
    Thanks again Tom!

    Clunker was weighed and measured this morning.
    Weight- 1069 grams
    Length- 7 inches

    Then he got his cake!
    I'll update his page and make a post on the "Tortoise Chef" on how I did the cake when I get the chance.
    Here are some pictures (of course)

    "Please Sir can I have some more?"

    Really cleaned his plate in the last picture! That expression looks like he expects this from now on haha.
