WoW! I don't know how I missed your Birthday Axle... :o I'm so sorry! I certainly hope you had a terriffic one.... You've come a LONG way in 3 years!

Ottoman appearance-one of those overstuffed footstools nice and poofy and comfy!

So thats how u spell Ottoman, now I know what it is, just never seen the word before, I thought it was auto-man.. hehehe

During the summer he put on alot of weight, mostly fat, cause he eats almost nothing during the winter. I turn off his heater so he can go into a simi-hybernation. a full hybernation would mostlikely kill him, & not hyernating would cost me way too much $$ in food & heating his pond, & he gets cranky when he's not simi-hybernating, & boy do I mean cranky. He gets all hissy, doesn't snap, he'll hiss open his mouth to hiss louder & then I close his mouth & he'll just hiss... Axle's hisssss is very different from a cat or a snake. Its more like deep breathing, people can do it to through our noses.

Happy Happy Birthday Axle - and who says it's late, maybe his hatch-day really is today, or tomorrow, or ... Whenever he decides to celebrate! :)

Treats for Axle!

Sorry I'm late, too, but happy birthday Axle! :D By the look of his photo album you're right, he has grown! Must be all the good stuff (and not just food) you're feeding him ;)

Thanks guys :)

His special teat is a big tub of fruit.
& I also learned that 1 piece of fruit left at the bottom of the pond, makes the WHOLE pond turn brown & gross. What a sick mess... oi!! I SOOOOOOOOO don't want to put my hand in that water... yucky!!!!

Well I know for fact he was hatched before July. It was at the last week of June. It was just before I got my first Rat Mike. But it doesn't really matter, he doesn't know any better hehehe
