    PINSTRIPE: Would you believe these are my NATURAL barbels?

    ME: Not for a moment...

    PINSTRIPE: Well, would you believe that I cut myself shaving? ;)

    I hope to post more updates in the near future. Bold and Pinstripe will soon be moving into a 40 breeder tank. The 20 long tank that they are currently in will not be empty... Two spotted turtle hatchlings (that we got at the National Reptile Breeders Expo in Daytona Beach on Saturday) will be moving in!

    I managed to lose Bold for a few minutes this afternoon in the 20 long mud turtle tank. You wouldn't think it's possible, but she blended in so well with the tank furniture that it took me a good ten minutes to find her. I think Pinstripe might have been trying to cover for her, too.

    Never underestimate a mud turtle... :)
