Few days ago, I shared a video of How Big I Can Be …well, now I want to share How Big Have I Grown. It’s funny how Mommy still sees me as very small where I have grown quite significant…it takes quite a long time but I DO grown!! I’ll be 2 years old soon…still too small for my age but at least I have grown, right? 😉

By the way…did you notice my color? It has become lighter as I grow older.


About Papoe

Hi...I am named Papoe (read: pa-poo) because my origin is from Papua New guinea :) I am a Pink belly short Necked Turtle. Mommy adopted me on March 11, 2012. I am struggling with my body size...maybe I am a midget

    Practically doubled in size! Maybe more! Is weight a big concern for keeping turtles healthy? Or do you primarily judge on size?

    • Novroz says:

      The big concern is actually the behaviour. If a turtle eat less than usual and less active too…then something is definitely wrong. As long as he is eating well, we have less concern.
      I feed Papoe normally (with vegetable, pellet and extra protein) but he still grows slower than my other turtles. As long as he looks active and eating normally, I think it’s just his kind…he might be a midget.

    You certainly have grown quite a bit, Papoe! Now you just have to keep growing, and you’ll be as big as you’re supposed to be!
