at around 5:50 AM i woke up a bit early and took a sneek peek at the tank and found this. sudden movements and shadows awoke them. but they got back into position after a couple hours and finally caught them

the male is on top, female on bottom

Image

hes a bit melanistic. his color faded so quickly. he aged so much

Image

he had his head rested on her shell earlier. they wore so relaxed

Image

ill keep a close eye on them if they do anything funny. hes been giving her lots of attention lately. he wont do anything without her. literally :wink: :oops:

Almost strange how they can appear so comfortable like that.
