    As I'm not experienced with raising tortoises. I'm worried about pyramiding. Due to the early stages being important I just wanted to get others input on the shell growth of my marginated esio.

    His shell seems to be developing fine I wouldn't be worried. But even if there is a little bit of pyramiding it's not a big deal. As long as it doesn't get too severe and doesn't affect his mobility pyramiding is ok. His shell looks great:)

    Oh thanks it's hard to know whether you are doing the right things sometimes. Now that it's warm outside he can spend some more time in the sun.
