    Hi, it's been a while since I've posted on this forum but recently my 4-year-old leopard tortoise escaped from his outdoor enclosure. He was last seen by a neighbor in their yard yesterday afternoon when he initially escaped but I have not been able to locate him since that appearance. My...

    She looks healthy but has big ridges

    She's about 10 years old and has been inside till about a month ago. I feed her the tropical grass pellets 3 days then a bowl of mixed greens and back to 2 or 3 days of pellets. She's had a UV light off and on her whole life. I'm just wondering if I should be worried about her ridges. I can't...

    My New Tortoise Trio!

    I was never able to own a pet as a child. My entire life, I wanted a dog or some kind of interactive pet. When I was in elementary school, walking down the street with my mother, we stumbled across a turtle strolling down the block. We took the turtle in and I was able to keep the lil turt for a...

    Seed mixes for leopard tortoises?

    Does anyone have good seed ideas I could start planting? I already have grass but my tort only seems to eat the Lil cloves off the grass and that’s it.... looking for some possible dandelion seed ? Or any other recommendations my baby leopard tortoise might eat that I can grow for him myself! :)

    New Leopard Tortoise, water dish and burrowing

    After months of consideration and a week of setting up the enclosure, my hatchling Leopard Tortoise has finally arrived, and I have given her the name of Miira! (I'm a writer and gave her the name of a character I love, I later learned what the name means in different languages!) She's been so...

    Assorted ponderings

    Some questions and current products. I'm currently researching what sort of amendments I can make to encourage my hatchling Leo to eat the Mazuri pellets and the soft Fluker's diet. I soak the dry Mazuri pellets briefly, but not so long as to cause them to lose their shape. I sprinkle them into...

    Baby Leopard in Northern Utah, a few questions!

    Hello! I made a post here a few weeks back about a Russian/Herrmans/Greek enclosure but between now and then I found the Leopard Tortoise and absolutely fell in love with its colors, personality, and above all it's size! Everything about it seems to be amazing, but before I move forward I do...

    How do I know if it was too late! Please help

    I recently purchased my baby Leopard Tortoise from a dry breeder who also did not know his age. (I will never make the same mistake again) I now have no idea the age of my lil guy or if he already has signs of pyramiding. I also have a scale coming in the mail so I can start tracking his weight...

    [Eye] Leopard

    Hi, I have a 2 month old Leopard hatchling. Today while soaking him (or her), I noticed a bit of orange under only his left eye. Could this possibly be from the terracotta dish? It is also on the fold of his neck. His overall health has been good, very active, eats a lot, passes his food OK as...

    Leapard Tortoise Weight Update!

    EDIT: Pictures got mixed up while uploading, so they're not in order. I posted about my leapard tortoises weight awhile ago wanting to know if he looked healthy, and if it seemed like he was on the right track in his growth. I mainly just wanted to know since I got Victor (my leapard) from...
