When you measure a tortoises length do u go by the their shell?
My Sulcata Michelangelo[TURTLE]
and my RedFoot Raphael [TURTLE]
The vet used a caliper. She measured it from right behind the neck to where the shell starts down, then measure the down part and add. She also did the width. I really love the rf shell it is pretty . Btw I cannot measure as well as write. Mine was 3.5 when I got him 2 mo ago. Now he is 4 or a tad more and 125 -135 g. My friend and I have been keeping track of weight like once a month
