She finally did it!! I was worried she wasn’t going to do it as she had been delaying it for months.
I should tell the story chronically.
Back in February 2010, I had my first shedding…not my skin, it was parts of my carapace called scute. I bet you didn’t know that turtles shed their carapace 😉 It was my first shedding. Mommy was ecstatic upon seeing my scute in the tank. She immediately captured it and kept it. She wrote this historical moment in her blog using our native language.
These pictures showed the position of my 1st scute
These pictures showed my scute in mommy’s hand.
In September 2010, I wrote about my shedding that had reached 90% of all my scutes. I still have 6 scutes to shed. You can see the changes of my Carapace”s color in here.
In October 2010, I finally shed ALL my scutes away. i have a completely new Carapace…yeaaa \(^^)/. You can read the details of my new carapace in here.
Mommy collected all my scutes and spent her weekend to put all my scutes back together again.She used glues and some fabric to keep all my scutes together. She also kept me near her all the time because the scute puzzle was a bit difficult to arrange without seeing my carapace.
How many scutes did I shed and how did she put them all together again can be read in Turtle Puzzle. Here is a picture to intrigued you 😉
She planned to put the glued scutes in a picture frame… but she kept on delaying it 😦 She did the puzzle on November 2010,on January 2011 she still hasn’t done it yet. I was beginning to worry that she didn’t care for my first scutes after all 😦
But…late February,I saw new hope 🙂
She took my scutes to a frame workshop. We have to wait for 2 weeks to see the result…the man was so slow in doing it. To make matter worse,he got it all wrong! Mommy was so pissed off with him. She undo it as soon as she got home and re-arrange the scutes the way she wanted it. She didn’t trust that man anymore,she didn’t even want him to re do it.
Well….anyway…now, my scutes are carefully put in a frame exactly the way she wanted it. They look really amazing in our bedroom’s wall 🙂
We took 2 pictures of the frame, one with flash and the other without flash. We did it to give you all a clear view of the frame 🙂
