“How big will they get?” Ianto asked Owen, who was measuring the Silverlings. They were a month old, eight inches long, and growing more slowly.



“No idea. Without knowing how long it takes them to reach maturity I’d just be guessing.”



“Well I hope they stop growing soon,” Jack said, leaning on the railing, a Silverling on his head. “It’s getting crowded!”



It was; the little creatures seemed to be everywhere, flying around the Hub and climbing the walls, searching for insects.



“At least they’re company for Myfanwy,” Tosh smiled.



“She’s a much better mum than I was,” Ianto agreed.



Extended Version


“How big do you think they’re going to get?” Ianto asked Owen, who was measuring one of the little Silverlings. They were a month old now and their growth rate had slowed down.



“No idea,” Owen admitted. “They’re all around eight inches in length now, but without knowing how long it takes them to reach maturity I’d just be guessing.”



“Well I hope they don’t get too much bigger,” Jack said, leaning on the railing, one of the little creatures perched on his head. “It’s starting to get crowded in here!”



It was true, the little lizards seemed to be everywhere, flying around the Hub and climbing the walls on sticky feet in search of insects.



“At least they’re company for Myfanwy,” Tosh smiled.



“She really likes them, and she’s a much better mum than I was,” Ianto agreed, watching Myf glide around the water tower, Silverlings fluttering around her.
