9 - I'm already driving Mommy crazy!

Chelmsford, MA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I had checked on him 10 minutes earlier and he looked cozy in his egg. Then, he was out! To drive me crazy, he made sure he crawled over a delicate 'brewing' egg (the right one) in front of me. He still cannot walk on his back legs, instead, he uses a clumsy swimming motion. It was so much fun seeing him move like a baby! I was really worried when he was still not out of his egg after four days. I learned later with a herpetologist that he probably hatched prematurely since he still had egg yolk attached to his plastron. For the record, he was born weighing 4 g (0.14 oz) and his shell measured 24 mm (just short of an inch) in length. The 'X' was marked on the eggs so the babies know which side is up.

About belletrouvaille

May 19, 2010: I carry my camera everywhere since I never know what I will encounter on my way. That is why I added "trouvaille" (good find) to my name. Didn't my dog find a good one to cuddle by? It had been a long sleep since I decided to post on WunderPhotos. (it still took me a month after I registered with it) This is more fun than Facebook! (though I have never had a Facebook account) Thank you for all your amazing photos that have inspired me day by day! Notes: 1. I don't edit my photos other than slight cropping, though I am aware of the old ways of changing results in the darkroom and admire what people can do nowadays on the computer. 2. With very few exceptions, I post photos in a series in chronological order from left to right and don't jump dates back and forth.
