This is Oogway a couple of days ago:
This was Oogway on 29 May, a few days after I found him on street:
He's grown from 2.8cm at the shell to just under 4.0cm in the span of 2.5 months. He's also become thicker through the body and substantially stronger/ more muscular. None of this comes as a surprise of course, but I've been away for over a month, so his increase in size and strength were quite apparent when I first saw him after getting back.
You might also notice that his body language is different. He's confident now, standing tall (for a teeny turtle) with his neck extended to look around. When I first found him, he was unsure of himself, undoubtedly due to his diminutive size, but also perhaps as a result of whatever trauma he endured before I came across him.
I only have a few days to get sorted before I head out again, so I have lots to attend to. But Oogway is doing me a favour by forcing me to take breaks at least three times a day to hang out and enjoy the moment.
