So my leopard hatchlings are doing great, they are growing well and have been no trouble so far.


This is my first leopard she’s approximately 10 months old. I got her from a friend who could no longer take care of her, and she had the beginning of pyramiding but we where able to stop that from progressing further.

I bought these other two from @Gijoux and they are 9 months old.. they are also doing great. No pyramiding right from the start. This is what a good breeder gives you ❤️ 73C0D775-274D-4305-94B1-C37313D51560.jpeg D25DC655-403A-4467-BE63-06869C06EF27.jpeg

They are looking Greeeaaaatttt! So happy they are all doing so well. Good to hear from you Brooke.
I have been MIA because I’m building a very large enclosure for some extra special additions to my tortoise family. I will post enclosure pictures and tortoises when I finish and I get them.. ❤️

I'd say leopard # 1 is a bit camera shy! Either that or she's without a head! :D
When I got her she wouldn’t even come out of her shell if I was even close to her enclosure. It was quite difficult to gain her trust. Even now after 8 months she will go in her shell if she sees me but she will come out once she realizes it’s me. And I know for a fact that her previous owners where extremely nice and careful with her, so she wasn’t abused by them.. In fact she was so spoiled that they where feeding her only things she liked because she was “picky”.. They tried a lot of foods but she only liked two types of lettuce.. so basically she trained them and they spoiled her.. The only reason I was given this tortoise was because the owners two years old daughter got hit by a car. (The daughter survived and is ok) but the owner (kids mom) was going to be in the hospital for months with her kid and she felt that she couldn’t properly care for the tortoise. But the two I got from @Gijoux where extremely friendly and socialized right from the very start. They also ate anything I gave them. This is why I say you can definitely tell the difference between good breeders and bad breeders, the animals tell you everything.

You are absolutely correct on this! I'm glad things are going well for you now.
