:welcomecrowd: to the forum chuckie & George :)

George looks a lovely, healthy specimen with lovely markings. It will be very difficult say whether you have a George or Georgina before 4 years of age.

Any questions you have, please fire away and tell us about your torts home & diet.

hi jessica welcome to the forum :wave: george is lovely
looking male to me but to small to be 100% sure
he might eat a bit more when hes settled in, the best diet you can give him is a weed/ plant diet if you have a look on the forum in the edible section you will find pictures of weeds he can have theres some you will already know also you can have a look on here http://www.thetortoi...e/plants_19.asp it lets you know whats good and not to eat :)
