My new babies!

Post by Hermiesguardian » Sun Jul 15, 2018 5:08 pm

I picked up my adopted babies today. The first one I'm using the name my daughter picked. Sebastian. He's the smallest.
The next I immediately named Rocky because when I picked him up instead of tucking into his shell, he seemed ready for a fight. When I put him in the tank, after dipping him, he went right to where Mr. Krabs was hiding and started checking him out. I was worried so I picked up the hide and Rocky quickly left. But Mr. Krabs followed him. Lol.
The last one in the painted shell, Heathcliff, in the first 5 minutes was checking out shells. He changed and I immediately removed the painted shell. Too bad if he wanted it back.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Oh my gosh, my heart can't take the cuteness. Where did you come up with the name Heathcliff?

They've been so active exploring. Checking out the pools. Heathcliff even ate.

I don't think so. At least not the ones I'm seeing. Not even the one I got from Petsmart last week.
