Hi everyone! I was given a tortoise hatchling last summer after it was found in a neighbor’s yard and the owners could not be located. I was told he/she was a sulcata (best guess at the time). Seven months later, Zen has only grown one inch in length and his/her shell color and pattern has changed drastically. I have a leopard tortoise, right?! Also Zen seems really light in color to me. Is this just a variation? I have posted a picture of him when I first got him and a picture of him recently for comparison. Thanks!
