Welcome to the forum, Lolo! Are they being housed together?

Hello and welcome. Torts should never live in pairs, and from what I've heard this species is bad even as babies.

Thank you for the pic. Hoping for more!

I thought they would be okay housed while they are babies. And was planning to separate them as soon as I can build a larger enclosure for each of them. Also planning on making them large outdoor enclosures for nice summer days.

I was planning on making them each larger enclosures when I have the extra money and time. I have done a lot of research on the elongated and was going by what Camp Kenan says about them. I appreciate the feedback. I just want to make sure I am doing the right things with them.

You'll soon discover that they need their own enclosures ASAP. Here is what can happen if you aren't quick enough about it: https://tortoiseforum.org/threads/bad-day-for-baby.114328/

Camp Kenan makes nice looking videos, but that is not a good place to get tortoise advice. He's new to the game and unfortunately he's been schooled by some of the old timers that are still doing it the old wrong way. Much of what he does and recommends is detrimental to tortoises.
