    Been awhile since I have updated Sheldon is now 1lb15oz. We just finished building a new outside enclosure since he outgrew the old one his weight gain has slowed just a bit I think it’s from having more room to run around. His appetite remains great now working on getting him to eat more mulberry and grape leaves :)

    You Well it’s been awhile since the last update Sheldon enjoyed his summer and all his outside time. Sadly his favorite zucchini blossoms have come to a end the frost just took out the last plants. He still has quite an appetite. He had been with us for 1 year on Aug 29th he came to us 106 grams and today is 3lbs 4oz! Found some great comparison pictures of him from the first day to a couple weeks ago. He continues to bring us great joy. It’s amazing how steady they grow when conditions are optimal. Thanks to this forum :<3::tort: and a huge shout out to @Tom for helping me find a great Breeder after our heart break of losing a previous tort @Lancecham for being that awesome breeder and all around great person :) we thank you and Sheldon thanks you. Sorry for such a long post

    Those pictures are priceless. Wow!!! Over 3 pounds already. Those comparison pics really put it in perspective how fast Sheldon has grown. He looks wonderful. I am so happy that one of my babies went to such a great home where he is being taken care of so well.
    I am sure the 5 pound mark will come soon.:)
