Hi, everyone! My baby African spurred thighed tortoise is currently a month old and is already 3 inches. This is quite alarming to me at least because from what I've seen online the average should be around 2.5 inches long until they're 6 months old.

-Thanks

A lot of tortoises have extremely varying growth rates, so as long as he is active and eating, he should be fine :)
