    So nice, what kind of plant si the green one? In the left is coleus ? I'll try set up the plant. What the plant needed ? Because I'm soaking everyday 10-15 minutes under sun, I'm not turning uvb lamp on. With plants do I need to turn uvb on ?

    Radiated Hatchling expected grow

    Actually 3 months, but yes Mid-April i moved them to closed chamber (after reading plenty information from this forum, and the vital need of humidity for hatchling) maybe they are still in stress.

    Radiated Hatchling expected grow

    It's 3 of them housed together at close chamber but not same age. They middle come from different breeder , left and right from same breeder, but I'm having difficult to confirm whether they are on same clutch or not. If they are born together, there must be something wrong with the smallest one.

    Pictures and thoughts on growing smooth tortoises today

    @Tom thats my friend aldabra, and some tells that the big growth line due to excessive eating, I still believe with correct diet, no need to limit their food. I also don't want to go extreme to give Mazuri everyday. Thanks for the information
