Our beloved curmudgeonly turtle has gained some weight. He now weighs 142 grams almost a third of a pound. When we were given him he was under 40 grams.
Our female juvenile eastern box turtle (Terapene carolina carolina) has gained some weight. He is now up to 68g which is not bad weight gain for the time period. If you look closely you can age him by the rings of his scutes.
