    Luckily the mulberry trees have an endless supply of huge tender leaves.

    Although she got most of the hibiscus off her face she's unphased by the bit of mulch near her eye.

    This marbled one is still kind of shy her deep red color has lightened and looks like there's some yellow coming through IMG_9129.JPG

    This one is very bold and spends more time out in the open then the other two in the same enclosure.

    @xirxes. This photo shows you a good example of different stages of how the marbling grows. If you look at the bottom tort in the photo you can see it just starting to come through at the scute boarders.(newest growth). Also there is some on the marginal scutes.

    @CharlieM , cool torts and cool photos as usual.

    That pic looks like a kid that got caught eating cake but tries to deny it while their face is covered in cake!
