Haven't posted any pics of my fatty boy, Nimir, for quite awhile He still has his stripers and they aren't fading Although they are hard to capture in a pic in the bright sun..lol. He is much darker in person. Excuse the yellow stains..his favorite hobby is "rolling after baths". It doesn't seem like I've had him over 2 years. His tail has grown so much since I got him,too. It was above his hocks when I got him.
