After our Grow-a-Crocodile experience, I searched around to find what other similar animals’ eggs we could hatch/grow.
And Amazon showed me this “Hatchin’ Grow Turtle”.
Day 0: Look who’s so happy to receive another egg to “hatch”.
And again, she felt it, smelt it, and explored it. This time she could tell me this turtle egg is much smaller than the crocodile egg.
And familiar with the process, she immediately dunk the egg into the water to start “hatching” it.
“Mama, now we wait for the turtle to come out!”
Day 2: Peek-a-boo!
Day 4: It’s almost totally out already!
So I decided to give it a hand (and I’m glad I did cos it looked like the turtle was stuck inside and despite growing, it wasn’t going to break free without going out of shape *whops*)
There, our new pet!
It went back into the water cos I wanted to see how much bigger it would grow to. (Wanna guess what’s its name? )
P/S, for the records, we took Crockie out cos I didn’t have any container bigger than the one it “hatched” in. And in weeks, it ultimately shrunk back to the original size… so yes! If I want to, I could always soak it again to revive it. Meanwhile, let’s see how if this little terrapin-sized one would grow to a giant turtle.
