With Kurome> Here’s the post. I was this big:


All together, when Mommy finally had three turtles, which was in September 2012. This was how the three of us looked like:



ย The next two pictures were taken in June 2015…and look at how big I have grown ๐Ÿ˜‰



According to articles Mommy had read, I might become bigger than Kroten.

According to this video> here , I can be this big

I don’t know how big I can be…for now, I am growing steadily in my own time ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    I’m curious: where do you keep your turtles? Are they kept inside or outside? How do you keep them from escaping?

    Thanks for sharing at

      They are kept inside my room in a two separate containers. When I set them free in the park, I always look at them closely. I don’t want to lose any of them.

  2. How I love turtles! Wonderful little guys you have there!

  3. That is great! They look like a great turtle team!

      My Kurome will not get any bigger…I only need to concern about Papoe being bigger than Kroten.

      Glad to meet another turtle mommy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! You have grown a lot. Your mommy must be taking really good care of you. I think all 3 of you are very beautiful.

    Oh my, such cute pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Holy moley! I hope you to grow to that gigantic size! That really would be something to see, although I’d bet that your mom would need to get you a much bigger tank. You might even need your own room!

    • Papoe says:

      Aunt Jean…to be honest, I don’t mind growing that big BUT yes my Mommy will mind. The tank will be our number one problem ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I will try to not grow that big in such a fast time ๐Ÿ˜‰
