Today I saw a little hatchling with a foot defect. Wanted to share for interest sake... (s)he walks fine, eats, is active and curious. It’s not mine but wanted to share, it was only the right back foot and everything else seemed pretty normal :)
My baby is actually a leopard tort but thought I’d ask about measurements and hatching as I saw it was a topic coming up in this thread :) but I’ve gotten a lot of info from the leopard tort threads so all set at least :)
Thanks for the info! My little one is actually a leopard tort but I presumed the yolk sack closing would have a general time it took? When mine crawled out it had a flat shell (bottom) and just a small pink scar which took two days to close up and harden
So amazing, Carol do you know how long it takes for an egg sack to close? My little one came out of the ground with it nearly closed (took a day or two then it was completely closed) so I’m just trying to figure out a more precise ‘hatched’ date as a DOB..
Hi Dan, many congrats!! He/she looks beautiful :) could you tell me how to measure the little ones? I also have a hatchling and want to track its size but I’m just not sure from where to where to measure [emoji16]
