Well, bigger anyway! Odin is one year and about 9.5 months old, and hit the two pound mark a couple months ago. He wouldn't let me weigh him today, too busy pooping and "hissing" at me for trying to clean him up with his toothbrush, but he is now taking his soaks in the container that he lived in as a hatchling.

He also completely fills his food bowl, which is an 8 inch terracota saucer:

And, of course, he is still as handsome, hungry and grumpy as ever....

I love it when they are grumpy. It somehow makes them more adorable. Odin's shell looks wonderful. You've done a great job with him.

Thanks @wellington and @christinaland128 !

I've been following all your threads on Odin for quite some time and I still laugh whenever I read your posts. He's just so irresistibly cranky and cute looking!

I have given up the fantasy of him ever being one of those sweet, social torts I occasionally see here and have embraced the saltiness! He wants his food and he wants to be left alone, darn it!
They say pets often adopt the demeanor of their owners.....:eek:

I am thrilled with his progress since I found this place and corrected the bad advice we originally got, but I will not be satisfied until he is full grown and beautiful.
Nearly two years down, 100 to go! o_O

"Big Kid" status verified!
Finally got a weight after his bath today and he is now 1276 grams, which puts him much closer to 3 pounds than 2 now! HO-LEE SMOKES! This is suddenly moving very quickly!
For a visual size comparison, here he is in one of his salad trays today:

And here he is in the same size tray 11 months ago.

Even he is shocked! 007
