    Indeed she is. Mine seemed to go opposite, and get less radiations as he gets older.

    Interesting Kelly......I found some old shots of a couple of years back. Sokatra; is 4 years old now ....and was obtained at early age 2 months.
    As you can see her pattern just keeps getting more detailed the older/larger she gets. [​IMG][​IMG] COMPARE

    PS...Speaking of habits....She is a riot to see when being " misted" She stands on all fours wayyyy up ....and stretches up tall ... I swear it's a crack up to see! ... Do any of your radi's do
    that?

    Oh yeah they go crazy when you spray them. Start wiggling and almost like seizing its very funny indeed. I do say mine did go totaly opposite. I will have to pull up baby photos and compare them. Astro is 9 now looks totally different when he was a hatchling. Thats tort n for yah though, never know whats gonna happen.

    SO true ......Hey Kelly are any of your Radi's studbooked? Would be interesting to see if any linage occurs. I thought at one time I met someone here who had some of the same bloodlines as Soko'.
