how fast should my babies be growing? I\'ve had them 5 months. Smash, the larger of the two is probably about 2\" (shell size). Axe, is noticeably smaller (about 1.5 inches). I got them both at a little over an inch. Is this normal growth? If this is slow, could a dietary change help?

BTW, Axe had a foot bitten off before i rescues him from the pet shop. I assume much of the reason hes smaller is because he had to heal the leg before the rest of him could grow.

Your right your smaller turtle suffered some damage so he will be behind in his growth. but hopefully not to far behind. my turtles have a growth spurt ever 3 to 4 months. they seem to adverage in growth a quater of inch in that time. i think every turtle is different it\'s just what i\'ve experienced.
