4/1/12 Fanny (top photo) and Frankie (lower photo) are making good progress. On 3/23/12 Fanny at 29.26 lbs. showed a gain of 1.98 lbs. since 2/27/12. Little Frankie at 7.48 lbs was almost the same weight 3/23/12 as on 3/1/12. He just began eating his max in the last 10 days or so. Both are excited to see their food and are eating off the bottom of the tanks. After eating their meal, they have a little lettuce for “dessert.” Green turtles become vegetarians as they get older.
