    I'd venture to say Lerato is content with her daily soaks. Her/his hatch date was April 21, 2018 and I got her on August 1st from @Elohi. It's been over 2 weeks since I got her and she's eating, pooping, and as active as can be. She's gained 8 grams so far I've had her. She's currently at 68 grams. She's also approximately 7 cm. Is this normal growth? I love her to death! I spoil her until no end because she brings me so much joy! I love my LERATO!

    Congratulations!
    I obtained my first tortoise (also a leo) in mid-July and am similarly infatuated.

    Beautiful creatures that get big, but not too big and don't dig!

    Well, ok, if you insist. [emoji6]
    This is Princess Earth Crystal.
    It's so much fun watching the personality coming out now that she's comfortable with her new home. She's got a definite intense "feed me now" stare. Otherwise, I am ignored. lol 20180816_112104.jpeg 20180817_145220.jpeg

    Similar markings to mine. PEC is beautiful too! I don't know if you've noticed, but it seems to me that the lighter leopards started off darker and vice versa. It might be because of the sun exposure? I don't know, but look at @Elohi's Beans. She started dark and came out so much lighter. Check out Beans on YouTube and tell me she's not gorgeous! And by the way, that's where I got LERATO. As a matter of fact, Watson and Freckles are her parents! Freckles is light. Whether or not LERATO gets as light or as dark as her, I don't mind because I love her already . it might be a boy, but we'll see. Lol
