    Jack @ Trinas first Sulcata Tortoise

    So I can tell Skittles is getting bigger so I weighted him again today....176G....17g in 2 days. I bought some Mazuri a couple of weeks ago and feed it a few times a week. Do you think that is making him grow?.....He averaged 1/2 g a day forever but now 17g in 2 days....crazy. Jack
