Hello there! My human calls me "Mochi" and thinks I might be a girl. I am 6.5 mos old, weigh 49g, and am about 6 cm long. One funny fact is that I seem most agreeable when music is playing. That surprises my human, who thought tortoises weren't supposed to care about music one way or the other! I'm just at the beginning of what hopefully will be a long and healthy life.
Which locale is mochi from?

This is Mango. He is a Corsica locale by Chris & Casey. I absolutely love my boy.
Last time he was weighed he was 66 g… he has definitely gained more since with all the eating he does.

It was Zola's 21st birthday in July, and my husband compiled this picture to celebrate. The little chap on the left was Zola at the age of 2 or so, and the little one on the right when he was about 3. The sizes are not accurate.
The big background tortoise is Zola, of course, about 2 years ago, when we took him with us to a fishing village called Fowey, in Cornwall UK

Thanks, Yvonne - I should like to point out that Zola's shell is so smooth and shiny only from a lot of stroking over the past 20 years - no polishing or oiling ever !

I almost forgot about this Hermann's thread! I will add our second Hermann's Gilbert Gbo who we re-homed in September (thanks @Ink :)). He is a Western Hermann's, Tuscany Locale, 3 years old. He weighed 351 g last month and is just about 4 1/2 inches long. IMG 4427

Lovely torts! I love seeing all the pattern variation there can be. Mine is an eastern hermanns from TortStork.

Kepler as a hatchling and around 6 months :) He now uses his original bath dish as a water bowl, grew from 1.25 inches to around 3.5 inches long haha

May be female, we'll have to wait and see, I love that the yellow cheek patch has stayed strong so far ♥

I got the whole group on the scale today and this is the result. I have had the dark animals for a month when they were all around 20 grams and I picked up the lighter colored animals in Germany today. all testudo hermanni hermanni var sardiania, but still a lot of color difference. according to the cites all born in august. I hope the blue numbers wear out fast.
Somehow missing one of the darker baby's but ok..

He looks a very determined little fellow ! I can see why you say he's a right little character! Just wait until he is 21, like ours - he will rule the household !
I see you have just joined the forum - welcome - you have found the right place for help and advice, and to meet other tortoise people ( I was going to write "owners",but I think the tortoises often own us )
Best wishes from Devon

Thanks I need to know what Temp he should be basking at.
He’s also pacing at the glass in the tortoise box I just bought.
I am going to paint it on the outside so he can’t see out.
