    Three months update

    Umi (with the black tail) now 8 inches.
    Suzu also 8 inches.

    Somehow, I cannot upload the photos, so here is a link to Picasa web album
    Picasa Web Albums - javaborn - Umi and Suzu ...

    Alternatively, on PhotoBucket:

      If you copy the 4th link below the pics (from photobucket) and paste it into the body of your text it will direct link the photo's to your post. Looks like they are growing very well and developing slowly but surely. They might make you wait for it, but waiting can be very rewarding sometimes
