Kame and Kichi

I have two cute Red Eared Slider turtles which I named Kame and Kichi. I named them as such because when I bought them, I was in the hype of watching the Japanese series of Sailor Moon. And on that TV Series, one of the characters has a pet Red Eared Slider whose name was Kamekichi. I have two Red Eared Sliders so I decided to breakdown the name into two. "Kame" means turte while "Kichi" if I'm not mistaken means lucky or luck/

When I bought them they were just merely 1inch tall. But now, they have already grown big. Kame is already 3 1/4 inches while Kichi is already 4inches. Kichi is much bigger than Kame because Kichi eats a lot than Kame.

I've read that a Red Eared Slider could live up to ten years if they are taken cared very well. I would really love to see the pace of the growth of Kame and Kichi up to ten years. Hopefully, if God forbids, I would really love my future kids to see my pet turtles. so that I can pass to them my being a pet lover and especially my being a nature lover.

Every end of the month I usually measure Kame and Kichi, and here is the pace of their growth.

August: 1 1/2 inches
September: 2 inches
October: 2 1/4 inches
November: 2 3/4 inches
December: 3 inches
January: 3 1/4 inches
February: 3 1/4 inches
March - April : 3 1/2 inches

August: 1 3/4 inches
