    Leopard tortoise hatchling with white lines on shell

    Sorry just posted some pictures, I thought I posted in the original post, I usually only take her out for about an hour or an hour and a half after work. Just the sun was really shining today and it was almost 90 degrees here and I was laying next to her and noticed the white all around her shell.

    Leopard Tortoise hatchling advice

    I can definitely imagine, she’s still getting used to us. I just want to make sure she’s ok in there because she’s a brand new baby and I don’t want her to get sick. Her temp right now is 86.4 and it stays between 80-90 all day. Her humidity is 36% (we’re waiting on our repti-fogger to come in)...

    Soft shell and won’t open eyes

    There is an electrolyte solution you can buy for him. Soak him in that, it’ll help. He’s totally dehydrated and the shell getting soft is due to dehydration and poor lighting. He’s on the brink, so please hurry!
