Hello

Look how they have grown in the space of 1 year.

The photos attached were taken respectively on 11/11/2016 and 11/11/2017.

 

They are 26 months old now, and just above 70 grams.

They are lovely! I have 2 babies also that are 3 years old. One has a short curled round stumpy tail the other a long tail so think I could have one male one female. They aren't doing well together so had to seperate them. Im hoping that after the bog one hibernates that they will go back together but haven't had any luck so far 😔

Thank you and yes I read your thread and I really hope things settle between your two young torts.

Mine grew up together since they hatched. This is Sue (Wizzasmum) who reared them. I got them in August 2016.

So far there has not been any competition for food, basking spots and or living space, so they have been living peacefully. Their indoor and outdoor spaces are quite big and I hide pieces of leaves in different spots in the enclosure, so that they search for it, so both have the equal chance to find the food without having the other one close around.

I hope they will continue to live peacefully, finger crossed!

Hi. Thanks for your response. Mine are also from sue. I got them in August 2015. Unfortunately one dominated the other so much so that I had to seperate. The bigger is around 120 g and the little one 36 now 😯 even in a large outdoor enclosure they wernt happy together,it was around 4 times the size of indoor one. Inside I have a large indoor plastic rabbit cage . Perhaps it could be space relayed but I'm hoping they can live together eventually. Amanda

Hi I haven't weighed her again yet but she seems to be eating well which I hope is a good sign. I will keep you up to date when I weigh her. How often would u say still once a month or more often.
