    I think that's a "I'm farting in the tub" face.[emoji1]

    Just gave Murphy a full spa treatment with a coconut oil shell job. Took a few pics. He is going thru some serious growth too!

    Thanks y'all. Repticon is coming here in 3 weeks and I've seriously been contemplating getting another RF from the same guy I got Murphy from. I've got the room for another enclosure but I'm torn feeling guilty that Murphy wouldn't be the only tortoise and get all the attention anymore. Is that weird? Lol

    Handsome little man on the grow! I'm worried...are tortoises like potato chips? One is never enough.

    Not at all, I think that's a normal feeling. I think if you get another one, you'll end up with two beautiful, well taken care of tortoises.

    Ya I believe so! Murphy has a lot of water turtle brothers and sisters already, but he might have some tortoise kin soon. I've seriously had the bug since soon after I got him.

    He looks like he enjoyed his spa day. Love the coconut oil shine. Really brings out his colours.

    Have been busy lately haven't been able to get on here much but update on Murphy, It now appears his shell may be starting to "Marble". A little more then a month ago one of his grow lines turned white. Within the past few weeks a few more have as well. I'm interested to see what happens and if it's going to keep spreading?

    Some better pics of Murphy's "Marbling". I'm excited to see if it spreads.
