She is really pretty! I'm a new Leo Tort owner and I question my Leo's weight gain as well as he is 6mths and 30g. He eats well, super smooth carapace, active, healthy poops/pees and I follow Tom's caresheet closely.
Mine was 14g when I got him as a baby. He's a little over 40g approaching a year
A 5 gram gain in 6 weeks sounds quite good. That's a 20% increase in a month and a half. I would be pleased with that in my collection.
I was worried, sometimes still worry but he always eats and is still very healthy looking so I think he's fine. Everything I've read says they all grow differently.Really? You have made my day, I was worried she wasn’t gaining enough weight.
Do you have any pictures of your little dude?
Well, I imported groups of 8-10 babies from each of these locales: Tuscany, Mallorca, Menorca, Corsica, and Varoise (mainland France). I had them all DNA tested for genetic purity and grew them up for a year or so. Ultimately I sold or traded them to other people. Chris Leone actually has some of them now.What locale is your T.H.H? Mine is from Apulia... They are generally smaller then the rest of the species
Feed the tortoise all it wants to eat daily. IE, keep various foods in front of it all day, every day. Sprinkle all the foods with both Herptivite and Rep-Cal (with Vit. D3). Soak daily in AM for 15-20 minutes while you are preparing the food, then put the tortoise in front of its feeding area. Once a month put Bene-Bac (the one for Birds and Reptiles) on the food as well.Interesting, what could I be doing that I'm not seeing that type of growth. I feed weeds everyday, mazuri 2-3 a week, . calcium occasionally. My little guy is @ year and is at 2.5".
