Neal~fun thread:) your lil leo is quite the unique one. I too agree that you hang onto it and see how it grows. Let us know if any of the other eggs hatch and look like that. Thanks for sharing...beautiful indeed!!

Very unique. If you decide to let him go, or perhaps he gets some look alike siblings, let us know, my daughter has took a interest to the leopards and has earned herself the privilege of getting herself one, so we would for sure snatch him up. Lol. Do you think the way the eggs was handled has anything to do with how he turned out?

A bit more growth has come in and he's looking more and more normalish
. He's packed on a lot of weight and if you look really closely between the 2nd and 3rd right coastal scute you can see a hint of white coming in, so he's about to have some more impressive growth in the coming weeks.





Despite a slight slope on his rear side that he's had since birth, the new growth is coming in very smooth.

I'm really not sure at all. Incubation can effect the shell in ways such as splitting scutes, but I am unsure as to how it might have an effect on shell pattern.
