Today marks 10.5 years with my human! To celebrate, here is a look back at my 10th birthday party in July. My human made me a cake and got me giant candles! You can watch me eat my cake and see lots more photos right here.
My human and I don’t know exactly when my hatchday is, so we celebrate the day I adopted my human. I still had my egg tooth when that happened, so my party day isn’t far off from my real hatchday.
P.S. If you are wondering how I am still so small after 10 years of chomping my human’s fingers, I have a metabolic growth disorder, probably genetic. I am growing, just much much slower than a normal turtle. It is another way that I am extra special!
