    Sorry I don't have weight or size but he is getting BIG :)

    Love touching his shell.
    90% free graze diet "grass and weeds"
    For the last 2 months he started walking towards me if I flash him some food:):) any thing red triggers the response.
    mini milestones.

    Also when does the shell start losing it lines and start looking more like a plate? Or is it just the pictures?

    Sheldon looks very healthy! You have such a wonderful environment set up for him. My "CupCake" is a bit smaller and younger, but looks very similar with the shell formation.(an Aldabraman baby also). It will be interesting to watch Sheldon grow, I hope you post a pic once a month to keep us updated on his progress.
