    Is my Greek tortoise growing too quickly?

    Hi everyone, I’m worried that my tortoise may be growing too fast and I want to ask what I may be doing wrong. I log his weight every week or so. When I got him back in August he was 0.9 ounces.

    Is 25 lbs stunted?

    My sulcata is 6 years old and he only weights a little over 25 lbs as of a month ago. Is that too small for a male sulcata that is six? I always see other sulcatas his age and they’re much larger in size. Ever since I have had my sulcata, he always barely grazed on grass and I think that has...

    Radiated Tortoise Pyramiding

    Hi Everyone, Recently, a friend of mine gave me this radiated tortoise. It is a male and the size is 29cm. I know that males can grow up to 40cm. So is there any possibility that the pyramiding will get better (smooth out) overtime?

    Growth on nictitating membrane on red footed

    Hi everyone! I have a rescued red footed tortoise, Happiness. I just discovered a growth in what I believe is her nictitating membrane. I hadn't been able to see her in a number of days and her other caretaker human tends to miss things, so I'm not sure when or how it appeared. Initially I...

    As we approach our first winter with Speedy, I would appreciate some feedback on his growth!

    Here are some pictures from about 2 months back, I can't find my first ones. Here are the new ones: I'm just curious as to if he's growing properly. His shell doesn't feel like it's pyramiding. Is it supposed to flatten out a bit around the back of it? That's the only thing that's...
