    Hi everyone! This is Bailey, our new baby sulcata. We've had "her" for about three days and are just in love. She is about 6 weeks old and has one extra scute on the left side. It kinda looks like a little button to me ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505676991.829960.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505677009.985352.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505677040.130104.jpg

    I have a new leopard with aberrant scutes. This is Leonard, hatched about a month before the rest of the clutch hatched (beginning of this year).

    Accidentally shared on wrong thread. But you got me to do a better inspection of her shell.
    Is her back considered split scute? IMG_3286.jpg
