    98g and 8cm as of today... she seems to be growing nicely, I think.

    103g today... one of my favorite things about living with Aretha is that she seems to enjoy watching me work while she enjoys a soak in the sunny-side pool in her enclosure. She often starts her day walking over to the food dish to nose through leftovers from the day before, then climbing down into her pool to watch my writing. When I put in the new food, she climbs aboard for about an hour to feed her face.
