Have you been able to weigh him? I keep saying Dudley is 110lbs, but really the last time I was able to weigh him he was about 103lbs and that was several years ago. I don't think he's grown much since last weigh in.

No, I still need to get scale to get an accurate weight. The last time I weighed him was with a bucket setting on a regular scale and he was right around a 100 pounds.But not sure how close that was because he never stopped moving his legs trying to get down. He doesn't like to be picked up which is OK with me because I can no longer pic him up by myself.

Took this pic today while I was cooking a few hot dogs on the grill.View attachment 239948 It has taken him about 2 years to grow an inch, he is 30 inches in length, still don't know his weight.View attachment 239949 Almost forgot the last pic. I see this a lot when they can see me working on the other side of the fence.

What's your technique for weighing him these days? Does putting him on top of a 5 gallon bucket, placed upside down on top of a scale still work?

Actually turn him over onto the scale for a short time. Doing this I can inspect how his shell I never see is looking and clean it if needed. This time he needed a hoe scraping to remove some dried on poop. Other than that he looked great. He's gotten to heavy to pick up and doing it this way doesn't seem to bother him.
