Dexter Update

Remember that tiny red-ear slider I got what seems like ages ago? I think that was about 3 years ago or something. Dexter came with Casey, but Casey sadly didn't make it past infancy. Dexter, on the other hand, has thrived like nothing else.

I think that coming home to LB has just contributed to him getting bigger and bigger, if not faster. He is heavy and has long sharp claws - hence he can be hard to handle. I wouldn't be surprised if we had to get  Marcus nursing scrubs just to handle him in a few months! Not that a uniform is necessary, but with all the animals and babies around here, one might as well!

Dexter has totally outgrown his aquarium. He even cracked the bigger one because of his tendency to butt the corners with his head. At least I think that's what he used to do. Now he has the front lawn to roam around in. Just to be sure that the mischievous puppies don't bother him, we put this protection around him.
