Hi everyone. You are probably getting bored of me as I am putting up so many posts but I think this marginated section is the only one where we only have very few members. I want to try and make everyone get to know marginateds and they are quite rare so if every one buys them they will rise in numbers. Here are a few photos of Billy. My 2 year old male. Please put up some posts of yours.

Yea you're right @yillt, seems to be very few marginated tortoises on here. Billy is very cute, how big is he now? Do you keep him outside?

I've had Douglas for around 5 months now, he will be 1 year old very soon. In the time we have had him, he has shot from weighing 30g and being 5cm long, to now being around 85g and 7.5cm long!

He's still indoors for the moment, but we're moving to a house with a garden this summer, so can hopefully get working on an outdoor enclosure!

Billy is 3 years old almost. He weighs almost 200g. He lives inside but every day in the summer I take him outside from the moment I get up to the time when I go to bed. I have had him just over 2 years. He is pyramiding abit. They grow quite large. They are the largest of the Mediterranean species. They can grow around 14 inches. They vary in colour a lot. Some are almost black with yellow dots on the bottom scutes

They are very pretty tortoises. I often wonder why some :tort: are more popular than others. Especially such good looking :tort:.

Lovely photos. Buddy is nearly 4 now and I put him out in the garden most days when it is warm. When he gets bigger, we'll have to put a shelter outside for him so he can stay out longer. It's completely enclosed so he can't wander and he'll be safe, so it's having the confidence to know what and how to dio it. 15587056167123952785522019929354.jpg
