I took these photos today of Morla. She is just about 9 months old and has been getting bigger. She weighs 147g and 3 1/2". I noticed the line that goes along her shell today and was wondering if this is normal. Also wondering if her new growth is coming in smoother...she had some pyramiding when we got her from the reptile store.

The new growth looks good, and the only lines I see is the new growth lines...

All the lines look good and normal to me too.

It will take time for the new growth to reduce the appearance of the old pyramiding. With the right conditions, this one will not look pyramided at all in a few years.
