    Was Victor now Vicki at 10” SCL. Very very minor bumps. Although photos seem to make them look worse than they are.

    Peaches just over 9” SCL. My smoothest to date. I think I have about 6 babies that could could end up as good as her.

    And then little foot. Still only 6” SCL. She just won’t grow like vicki and peaches. All 3 raised together, all approaching 5yrs old. I’ve separated her for a while, I feed her regularly on her own to make sure she’s getting her fill. She simply only eats a bit then wanders off, Where as my others will gobble up just about everything.

    Still a baby. Only about 1yr old. How old does he need to be before his shell looks like the others on this thread?
