I’m upgrading Aretha’s enclosure as she’s grown a lot, and increasingly faster, in this past year.

I’ll be partitioning off about half of our garage, building an enclosure from pvc trim-board, installing lights and plants above the enclosure (for shade and food), and heating the newly partitioned “room”.

I gave Aretha a nice long soak this morning, weighed her, and gave her the wellness exam I try to do with all of my torts every month or so... she seems in great health to me.

She keeps putting on weight at a good pace.

I think the new growth lines on her carapace look good.

I love the spikes on her thighs and can attest to how muscular her legs are....

Her eyes are clear and alert, her nose is free of goo and respiratory rattling, she's active and hungry and I love watching her explore.

I'm excited to get her into her new enclosure, which I'm currently working on, it'll more than double her available space.

Hi,

By animal protein I mean meat, or meat products

I feed my omnivorous torts a mix of animal based protein including:
Mazuri croc diet
Raw dog food (a product made of meat, b organs and bones)
Shrimp, with shell
Salmon, with skin
Cow or chicken liver
