Thank for sharing this with us, Welcome to the forum. I have a 8 month old aldabra and he/she is such a change from raising sulcatas. The Aldabra's are so laid back where the sulcata's are the demolition crew. LOL
It's been a busy year starting our veterinary practice (for that reason I have been AWOL form the forum), however coming home to tortoises has kept me as grounded as possible day after day. Tico is now over 24" SCL!
