Henrik has broken his claw again!

Why, that little ... !! >:-(

I just fed them (Raphael is still eating) and when I looked Henrik over before letting him back in the tank, I noticed that he has broken his claw again. Yeah, the same one. Now it's shorter than ever. >:-( And it was growing back so nicely, too. Stupid little critter. >:-(

It's all his own fault, because he keeps digging and rooting around in the rocks on the bottom of the tank. I wish he wouldn't. But I guess at least I should be grateful that it's the same one he keeps breaking, and not a new one every time ...

(HUG) poor dear Henrik, how is he coping on the crutches

why don't you just take out all of the stones?

Fortunately it doesn't bother him, it just bothers me. ;-) His little foot, it's so adorable, but now it's malformed ... ! :-o It won't be a problem for him, it's just so typical that he had to do this just when it was starting to grow back so nicely.

truand, I want the stones there, it looks soo much better than just a bare glass bottom, and it's better for the turtles too, it's more like their natural environment. Herman hardly ever digs in them though, that's just Henrik's thing to do that. :-)

The picture did not load on firefox last night, I see the problem, he is trying to escape because a womans hand keeps squeezing him :)

Leisha Camden said...

Silly, he can't feel the squeeze, he's got his shell to protect him ... ! :-D

Paz said...

sorry teasing, I had this picture in my head of you squeezing the body to get his head to pop out >:O, I know I need to get a new hobby besides commenting on your blog

Leisha Camden said...

LOL! I don't think I'd ever be able to squeeze them that hard ... :-D

What you need to do is to read a book - and I know which one you should read, too ... ;-) Pretty soon you will actually need to get a new hobby, at least for a couple of weeks. Oh, I'm so mysterious! :-o Check back later today ... !

Does the book have pictures, or pop up pictures, or can the pictures be coloured in (I can stay between the lines most of the time now).
Good luck with whatever it is that will stop you blogging, I might have to go back to the web forums and chatrooms, where i am 16 year confused Abigale (Joke)

Your memory's going ... The book I'm thinking of doesn't have any pictures, but it does have vampires in it ... !! Hint hint ... ;-)

I will never be able to trust anyone calling themselves 'Abby' online ever again ... ! :-o

Paz said...

that book is on my to get list once I get to a town with a decent bookstore, last one of that genre i read was called "The world on blood" not the usual take on vampires, interesting concept but sh!t story.
Was joking about Abigale, really its Mary Lou ;P

The World on Blood - I think I have that book on my TBR list. Hm.
