Such a cool growth pattern. What is your setup?
8x2 aquarium that I modified. It is completely closed off and I cannot see inside of it. I insulated all of the glass because it sits in my garage. It has 2 CHE's on both ends on thermostats. One end has a mercury vapor bulb and the other just a plain 65 watt flood light. Temps alway stay around 82 and humidity always around 85. It has a pvc pipe that runs the length of the enclosure with holes in it that is hooked to a humidifier that I turn on about every 3 days. Here is the thread for the enclosure, like I said thought, it's completely insulated now. I couldn't find my thread but I did find where I had showed someone else.

That is great! I love it. Do you supplement? Feed Mazuri?

Yes I do feed Mazuri and a few other pellet supplements on occasion to my torts. This one however doesn't like it and has only been fed greens or weeds. He/She, I'm leaning he(tail size), has never eaten anything else.

Potentially I'll be picking up this little girl tomorrow. The gal I'm receiving her from found her in horrid habitat conditions at a pet store and couldn't just let her stay so she bought her. She has a total of 5 Leo's, and I'll be getting this one.

That's some awesome growth! what are you feeding that bugger?!
Greens, Greens and more greens lol...... She eats a mix of all kinds of store bought greens Endive, Escarole, Dandelion, Romaine etc.... I seeded my yard with fescue last fall and it stayed green all winter and grew during the cold months. I would just go out and hand cut it with scissors and she would mow through that too. I give her Mazuri just a few times a week mixed with grass, grassland tortoise food and repti-cal. She is different from all my other leopards, she follows me around and is very, very social. She dwarfs my 2 older ones.
