Sabine, how do Ma and Mo compare to each other in size? I weighed all of my Sullies yesterday and Pickles and Crusher are 8lbs different... it really baffles me since they have never lived together ( past the first 3 days) and have had the exact same enclosures for 2 years... they are both healthy so it doesn’t bother me in any kind of a negative way... I’m just curious about the growth differences...

Ma and Mo are quite the same size and I think the same weight too. I haven`t weigted them for a long time. My guess is that they have 11 lbs now. Mo was a little bit bigger when I got them but now they are both the same size. One of my sulcata tortoises is bigger than the other 3 though they are living together and eating the same. The biggest one was the one who soaks him- or herself a lot in the water dish ! :)

I'm afraid to report that Sabine suddenly passed away on the 5th of July.
A tragic loss, she was a true lover of tortoises and nature in general.
She is buried in the woods around her home.
I will post again when I find out what has become of Mahé and Moyenne.

Oh my Gosh Adam!!! There are no words! I’m so sorry... is there anything we could do for her family?

She was a carer for her life partner, but I don't know what we could do. I think he's pretty well-off.

Oh garsh. I've been looking for her on utube and here. Hope her babies are taken care of well.

Rest in Peace Sabine. You are going to be very much missed.

Mahé and Moyenne have been rehomed in a 'real tortoise's paradise' near Nuremburg in Bavaria with a gentleman who is a "real tortoise freak" who has a lot of knowledge about reptiles. His animals are said to live better than he does.
