Default Introducing...

August(us) and Carmine... or Gold and Silver as they are still being referred to due to the colored dots on their backs!
Carmine has been a little shy in coming out but seems to have settled in a bit better today.



A quick shot of both of them on day one... before Carmine aka Gold hides again!



Augustus aka Silver exploring



Augustus Catching some rays



Bath Time



Carmine has come out to play!!

Yes I thought so but it threw me a little as I thought originally you were using topsoil. Coir is good though.

I hope theyr'e settling in well and you're managing to get other jobs done than sit and watch them.

They are very distracting! Love watching them stomp around their table.
