Hey everyone, my leopard hatchling Bacardi is 6 months old this week :) When I first brought him home on May 2, he was 11 weeks old 2" long and weighed 41 grams.

Today, after being home for ~3 1/2 months he is now roughly 3.5" long and weighs 140 grams!

I've been raising him in a 2'x4' closed chamber, feeding him twice a day with daily 30 min soaks. I'm still new to tortoise keeping and wanted to get the opinions of all you TFO experts :D. How does the little guy look? how about the growth rate: slow, fast, average? I'd love to hear your feed back so I can raise him up strong for many years to come! Hopefully, like his name sake he'll only improve with age lol.

All the best, TK.

P.S. I know you all love your tortoise butts, so here's one more for the road.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate it. @Jerry520 I'm feeding him a rotation of dandelions, kale, collard greens, and endive supplemented with zoomed grassland pellets occasionally. He also gets calcium+D3 and multi-vitamins twice a week.

Just curious, at about what size should I consider him to have outgrown his enclosure?
