she's done raising her third clutch of bubbas. all the bubs have been released into the world. i reckon there were about 15 of them this time. she looks a little skinnier in the third picture because that one was taken after the third batch had left. i've been giving her lots of rest, a bit of morning sun, and some good food (bobbeggs, small mealworms, less fruit flies). she's slowing down a little, wonder if she's getting on in age or just tired out from having so many kids... in any case, after some counseling from uncle john, i've come to terms with the fact that one day she will leave me and i will be devastated, but i hold in my heart the knowledge that i've given the best care to her and all her bubs.
