Hi guys!

I got my adorable leopard tortoise hatchling, Cupcake, back in February. I posted some pictures in the Introductions thread then, and I really appreciated all of your kind responses!

I really love this little guy (or gal). He is a voracious eater (radicchio is his favorite) and does not seem to fear anything, even from day one. When I got him on February 24th, he weighed 36 grams. Now he weighs 77 grams. I thought that it would be fun to share some pictures of his growth with you! I am one proud tortoise Mom!

When I first got him:
