Ms.Box 30-yr update

Snapped a few new shots of the "old lady" - this is her 30th year with me, so I'm guessing she's around 40-ish or older. She appeared to be full-grown when found, and has grown very little since then. Her unusual feature is the staggered row of 7 vertebral scutes down the middle, rather than the usual 5 in a straight line.
