It makes sense and I myself like those growth lines/ridges and bumps. In fact before i knew that pyramiding was "bad", I kinda liked that look (still think those are really cute looking torts), I just had few "worry thoughts" go through my mind about maybe "hurting them by overfeeding". I am a feeding fanatic by nature and have NEVER limited food to my animals and children, I always cook more then we can all eat, never use small pots and pans in my kitchen. I was brought up to always "invite the hungry to the table" only here I live no "hungry travelers" ever knock on my door at dinner time. It's a miracle that none of us in my house are seriously overweight. I found this thread interesting and know that Craig has done quite a bit of work on this, and he has been one of my many Mentors on this Forum. Thank you so much for your reply. Much appreciated. My tortkeeping tenure is only little less than 2 yrs and I still seek lots of validation from The Experts and can't tell you how much I appreciate this Forum for all of it's combined knowledge and expertise. Have a great dayThese two look about as fine as one can get in captivity. Their shells appear perfect.
Remember, these are not burrowing, or plowing through vegetation and thus every little ridge of growth is being retained.
