I have great news for everyone 🙂
Well…actually we have 2 good news but Kroten will share the other news two days from now 😉
Now, I want to share good news regarding my shell. I have had my perfect shed \(^_^)/
If you don’t know what shedding is you can read all about it here> Turtle Fact #9: Scutes.
This is the latest picture of me during my shedding process:
Yolu can see that my scutes didn’t look so good, they were peeled off in some areas. After moving to our new house, I started shedding the off one by one. Mommy kept finding new scutes inside the tank and when she dried me off to have my morning sun, sometimes the scutes also caught in the “towel” she was using to dry me.
My scutes are very thin (unlike Kame and Kroten’s). You can see it in these pictures below:
Here are some of my scutes that mommy able to collect
How do I look with my new shell??
Well…I look gorgeous 😉
This is my spotless plastron…looking rather cream than pink.
And this is my carapace. Look at that pretty scutes all attach nicely 🙂
I will go through this shedding process again one day…but for now, let’s just enjoy my new fabulous look 😉
