Hi Everyone,

Here are a few shots of my baby Map Turtles (Amelia and Sebastian).

I've only had them about a month but they seem to be growing and gaining weight just fine.

Let me know if you see anything I should be concerned about.

Thank you

Regarding my pics. In the second pic I was wondering if the very back scutes seem like they are splitting open at the ends - is this normal growth or is there a problem.

Thank you

I'm not sure what you mean about the second picture, they both look great.

The edges of the back of the shell look like they are frayed or split - I didn't know if this was from normal growth or if there was a problem.

I thought the 2nd pic showed what I am talking about the best.

It's hard to see since their shells are a bit dark, but I don't see anything out of the ordinary.
