Ok , so I started weighing the Aldabras every couple of weeks, some days they would be 35 g heavier than the day before, then when they pooped , they would weigh less. So it is easier to see the results of real growth every 2 weeks
Jackson weighed in at 1048g today, a solid 150g in 20 days, he feels heavy

One problem with a sealed enclosure with high humidity is that you can’t take any good pics through the window, always has condensation on em🙄🐢

Jackson weighed in at 1611 g this morning.
he was 1411 on nov 8, so he is holding pretty steady at 10 g per day weight gain. 200g in the last 20 days. I guess this is probably about normal growth rate for Aldabra s this size
