Oh, how cute!! I love it!! And Mo is a little bit more shy then Ma right?
So cute!Hi everyone! This is Bailey, our new baby sulcata. We've had "her" for about three days and are just in love. She is about 6 weeks old and has one extra scute on the left side. It kinda looks like a little button to me View attachment 218531 View attachment 218532 View attachment 218534
Those are really cool patterns. Love it!I missed a nesting and this clutch hatched in the ground. I found the babies (most dead) last December, still cold and winter weather. This was one of the survivors. I'm keeping him (Zipper):

And this is Alex, a little Sulcata hatched by Forum member @Tortlex in January. I expressed an interest, and took possession in April. A nice addition to my little herd of aberrant scute babies, doncha think?

Wow! Beautiful [emoji173]️So where are pictures of older abnormal scute tortoises? Back to @Cowboy_Ken 's orginal question... are there really that few adult examples when we see so many split/abnormal scute babies???
Here's a 6 year old Burmese star I have that is missing a scute. I got "her" sent to me as a female, but though it looked male when I got it. HE proved me right within a few months! Hatched Apr. 5, 2011
