photo.JPG I have been following all of Tom's recommendations for a healthy, smooth sully. He just weighed in at 125 grams at 5 months old. Does this sound ok? He was a slow starter at 35 grams when I got him at 5 weeks old, but the last month or so he has taken off. He has always been a healthy eater. I added Mazuri 2-3 times a week. So far he is pretty smooth. Tell me what you think............:)

Its funny I just got my baby a little over a month ago and my husband and son think I'm crazy. I never thought I could grow so attached to a little tort but mine has stole my heart. Glad to hear about other crazies. lol And I think your little guy looks great.

I often take refuge in this quote:
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music." -Nietzche

Let them think we're nuts. We dance with appreciation and delight at the marvels of animals that may be overlooked and misunderstood by those who are less grateful for the beauties of the world.

I absolutely love this. I think I will carry this quote with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for sharing. :)
