    Your radiated is absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately, the rest of the pictures don't open for me, but maybe I can come back at another time and see them (hopefully).

    I don't know if it's a trick or not. Whenever I cannot see some pictures, I try to go to a different page, after that page has loaded I press back and all the pictures that I couldn't see previously seem to load. I haven't tested it enough to know if it always works. Hopefully it can help. I'm on a smartphone.

    If someone has "replied" including the poster's post, then I can click on the pictures and they open. But in this thread no one has done that. I'll try your "trick."

    Or their tails :) might still be a bit early to determine gender though, but personally I think they look massive for their age :D

    Great looking torts! I also raise aldabras in a cold climate. My oldest was hatched probably early 2013. It would be great to know the length and weight of yours. Clearly you are raising them well.
