TL;DR

For those of you just joining allow me to say "hello!" Here's what you've missed so far, in it's abridged form:

Found 3 snapping turtle eggs
Hatched them
Released 2 of them back into the lake
Kept 1, named him Kraken
Bought an oscar for his tankmate, named him Rufus
Here are some picture of Kraken that are very recent:

Kraken next to my hand for size comparison (yes that's a tattoo, long story)-


Here he is lumbering around-


Mugshot-


In my next blog I'll talk about his current setup tank setup and upcoming plans.
