Monstrego

monstrego-9-25-2008-10-31-30Monstrego, my male red ear slider (Trachemys scripta elegans), comes up to breath in his 55-g tank.   Monstrego and Barzini are currently in the same tank, and Monstrego is constantly courting Barzini, although I haven’t seen him successfully breed this year.  Barzini has laid three clutches that I’m aware of, none of which  had any hatchlings emerge.  Luckily though, these turtles can live upwards of 30 years if well cared for, and both of mine are about six.  I’ll get a hatchling one of these times…
