RE: Introducing Mike & Ike, hatched this week!

So cute! Have you weighed them? I got a itty bitty russian a few weeks ago from a local shop who deals with a local breeder but he was significantly smaller than all the other torts for sale. I have a theory that he either hatched late and the breeder threw him in with the rest anyway when the reptile shop bought them or he is a runt. He was about similar size I these guys and had a small bit of yolk sack still around (though it was dried and blackened at the time. It is gone now)

Anyway, I'm just trying to get a relative idea of his age. He was pretty comparable in size to mike and Ike. They are so pretty!
