    (Baby) sulcata long beak?

    Hey Tom, I appreciate you responding so quickly. Two reasons why I am concerned. One, his beak as mentioned ( also still has egg Tooth) which isn’t causing the clicking sound when he eats. And secondly his shell has a wave like appearance. Which I haven’t seen before. I’ll attach some photos...
