After a long time I present my South African Leopard Zvezda! @Ink I know you wanted to see the bugger.

She is HEAVY!

She did poop a lot, but it was semi liquid and now stabilized.
She is eating ferociously on grass seeds and those rounded (lily pad) clovers.
Any suggestions on shell health and diet would be appreciated.
P.S Does anyone have tips on growing dandelions from seed?

How to grow dandelion seeds? You put them on the ground, and they will grow. They are weeds.
Keep in mind that dandelions are a 'feed in moderation' plant because of its diuretic properties.
I really like the Broadleaf Testudo Seed Mix sold by Tortoise Supply. It does also include dandelion, but has 24 other plant seeds, also. Thistle and chickory, and plantain and violet and mallow are all plants you can very easily grow from seed, simply by spreading it on the ground.

Here she is soaking, like a little queen, tsarina?

Thanks @Yvonne G and @Tom for your advice, I found a mixed salad pack in the shops, and it seems I am suffering (for the second time) with new tort syndrome.
She is healthy and going strong

I have GLORIUS news. She has discovered grass and is eating it! (She is eating a lot and quickly, so I'll just check that she has enough)

Just now when I went out to get some images, I saw her, went in to get something, and when I came out I didn't see her... she was in the same place
That image of your tort is beautiful.
That's what I've come to realise and like about leopards, the world is their oyster and everyone else is side caracters, they always check us humans out when we approach like
