Sorry to say this is a late post 😦

Being a working housewife sure takes all my time away. I do remember her gotcha day BUT I hardly had time to sit in front of the computer and start writing about her special gotcha day. I hope she forgives me for this late Gotcha day post πŸ˜‰

I got Papoe 4 years ago, in March 11, 2012 to be exact. She was soooo tiny and sooo cute. I am happy to say that I got her from a breeder, she was not captured from the wild. Papoe’s species is not the type you can find anywhere, she is a bit rare…it’s easier to find her type here because she belongs in Papua (hence her name is Papoe – read pa-poo)

She is still the shyest in the family but she sure is the prettiest in the family. She changes into a beautiful turtle so different to when I first got her.

Let’s see how she has changed so much:

The first few days after I bring her home, pay attention to her dark colour.


4 year old Papoe, so bright…but still has the same smile

Papoe’s tummy now


I am happy to see her look healthier and fatter…but not too fat.

Now look at how she has grown πŸ˜‰




In comparison to Kroten.





Within 4 years, she has grown to be such a gorgeous and beautiful turtle. I have never thought she would turned from dark to pale. I love her soo much.

Happy 4th gotcha day my beautiful baby πŸ™‚

    I really like to see how Papoe’s tummy turned out now. It looks much smoother.

    I can’t imagine an overweight turtle. Does it really work that way?
