I'm so excited and happy to have them back. I missed them a lot. We brought them back to Boston yesterday and they adjusted to the surroundings pretty much instantly. I need to measure their shells because it looks like they've definitely grown in the last four months. Plus, they're officially two years old now! So I need to record their growth just to keep tabs on how much they grow each year.

Here's pictures of them from like maybe fifteen minutes ago.

What are those plants?

I just picked up a 55 gallon tank for my son's turtle, whose still less than 2 inches long. I love the idea of a plant to hang out on.

@thinkskater: i think their growth was stunted when they were newborns. when i got them from chinatown they were only a couple weeks old and really, really sick. the first year i had them they didnt really start to grow for at least three months, maybe longer.

what's the average size of a two year old red ear slider?

@moose: haha nice. i like that plastic plant. it's cool cos it's almost the same color as them and i think they like that.

I don't really know the average size. My biggest right now is right under 5 inches just shell length and mine are not too much older then yours as I remember the pictures you posted. Regardless, very happy to see two healthy turtles.
