And don't forget! WolfNippleChips had two of her PPs breed.
If we are referring to the thread I'm thinking of, they did not live, however that thread has a ton of pictures which are interesting to observe.

On the other hand, I love how big they've grown!

Babies are now 6 and a half months old and finally the first has moved up a size into a 4th shell. They have kept 3rd shells for months and months. I am now expecting the other 13 to change shells in the near future as well.

Might only be 12 or 13 in total. I sort of lost track but it is at least 12.
