My girl seems to be very healthy. She is 16” long and about 16 lbs. Beautiful to look t and watch everyday. She is VERY restless for whatever reason. She eats well and she drinks water often. She is insisting on trying to climb out! She has moved everything around in her enclosure. Humidifier (tipped over) , her food dish, water dish, and every stone and plant inside of her area, etc… It looks a mess and I put it back together every day. I found her upside down and thank goodness I had been in there 2 hours before. I soak her 2 times per week and she poops every time.
What could her problem be? I believe she is too young to lay eggs.
I think I am taking great care of her and her pacing and plowing everything is on my nerves. Help!!! Her name is Daisy and she has turned into a tank 4098BA9B 243D 4259 B6EB 34409657BA69

She's gorgeous. I really hope to have a leopard soon. She seems way to big for that enclosure. Too small for even my ity bity Russians

What a beautiful tort. Maybe she needs more space.
Do you have a spare room you can adapt for her?

Beautiful tortoise! Thank you for sharing these pictures :)

I agree with the other comments here … I also have a Leopard, also 3 years old (and assumed female) and she’s also a big girl. Prior to moving her into her new, larger enclosure, she became very destructive. This behave has ceased entirely now that she has sufficient room. Best of luck, and once again you’re obviously doing a terrific job - she’s beautiful.

close up of the first picture looks to have pink on the shell. Might want a vet to check for septicemia.
