So when I first got Murphy last January I only made an introduction post, and never kept a thread going for just Mugshots and videos of Murphy. Unfortunately I broke my phone last week and lost all my pictures and videos I had of him besides what I have on YouTube. So from here on this is going to be his thread to track his growth and for Mugshots. When I got him in January he weighed 375g, he's gotten too big for the scale and I haven't weighed him in a few weeks but last check he was around 725g. Took a short video today, gave him a soak and coconut oil shell job, and took some pics. Its hard to get pictures because he never sits still or goes in his shell!

Thanks man, I didn't even realize his growth lines till I took the pictures today. He's been going outside all day now and it's really crazy how fast hes growing.
You're welcome, yeah it's scary how fast they grow.

Murphy is a gorgeous tort. Love the last picture. He looks really content.

Possibly because he is getting older and bigger ( maybe even wiser) [emoji23] [emoji23] He must have realised that there is a bigger world out there.
I think he's just getting bigger.

What a brat lol. Skurt tried the same thing. I’m expecting his new fancy indoor enclosure to be here by August from animal plastics. Then I’m getting him an enclosed dog pen fence style with shade cloth over 1/4. Been looking at a 15x10 and hope he enjoys it.

I missed out on a free 10x15 dog pen a few weeks ago, the guy gave it away before I cameback with a truck! I been checking Craigslist for one, but in the meantime I'm going to do one with wood sides this weekend

@daniellenc I remember a couple of months ago you told me about Rose of Sharon hibiscus. I almost bought one at home depot last week for $20. I just now realized I have 2 huge ones growing in my yard already! I've never seen him eat like this!
