    Took weights&measures on the little one today. 51.4grams&6.5cm scl.

    I must say this is one cool turtle who's very content sitting in the corner a vast majority of the time.

    From the aspect of physical appearance, I have to say that is probably the most interesting hatchling I've ever seen..
