    Selling hatchlings is so frustrating. Just a short rant.

    I am not a really patient person in the first place, and I find trying to sell my hatchlings to be a very frustrating experience. Why can people not answer simple questions, or follow a simple email conversation? I do not just sell a tortoise to anyone who sends me money. I spend time talking to...

    Leopard tortoise barn

    Got my females out of my basement this year with a tuff shed/tortoise barn build. We fully insulated it, and wired it for electricity. It is 10 X12 with 3 tortoise doors.

    Leopard Barn build

    Andy, What are you doing?

    One of my females, Andy, is about 5 years old, and has never been bred. She just dropped 18+ eggs. I do not know if she is done.

    My beautiful Andy scared me today. Poor baby has an owie.

    When I first saw Andy's shell I thought I have a really bad problem. I assumed the blood was from being rammed. I have 4 females housed together. Upon closer inspection of the wound, the other girls, and then the enclosure, I believe she is rubbing along the corner of the heater box in her night...

    This is Brooke. Brooke is a runt. He(?) is 3 years old, just over 5 pounds, and right at 9 inches. His sisters, clutch mates, are 10 to 20 pounds and 12 to 15 inches. He has never flashed me, and I am beginning to doubt. Opinions?
