How quickly do turtles grow?? I\'m curious because i\'ve had my very young turtles for awhile and I\'m concerned because they don\'t seem very much bigger. Thanks!

don\'t worry. at first it seems as if they will never grow and before you really realize it they are growing up a storm and having growth spurts every 2 to 3 months. don\'t worry. little ones just are that way. give it some time and you will see it.

Does that mean it\'s not unusual for them to look like they\'re slightly too big for their shell when they\'re still babies? Even though now it looks like his shell is growing.

correct! they do look slightly bigger than their shell at first. but if this persists when they get older you have an overweight turtle. then the obvious......a diet
