    Just wanted to share the size difference between Burmese Star Tortoises born in June/July 2018 and March 2019.

    Crazy how fast they grow in less than a year!

    The yearlings are all about 3.5-4.5". I don't have a scale but my guess is all between 250-400 grams

    A 3.5" burmese star will weigh 160-180g
    A 4.5" burmese star will weigh 300-350g
