Update on my tort

Squirt is getting big! We still arent sure if Squirt is a boy or a girl, but I’m taking Squirt to the very for a checkup and I’m going to see if they can tell me. I dont care one way or another to be honest, it’s more out of curiosity. We have a bet going for if Squirt is a boy or girl.

Squirt has gotten a lot bigger, and her bite is super strong now! Before it was a tiny bite, now it’s a chomp!

Right now Squirt is in a 30 gallon aquarium, but from what I’ve read glass isnt best for them, so we are moving Squirt to a better suited wooden enclosure.

Yep, Squirt was a few months old when we got them, and Squirt has almost doubled in size!

Also yeah they are land lovers, but will soak in the water dish.
