Hi blodesarah,I will send you photos of my pancakes and set up before the weekends out.i realy love the pancakes thay are like nothing on this planet with there flexable plastrons and there speed.beware thay are good escap artist and thay can climb vertical wall.never keep 2 males together thay will fight and thay can be nasty more so when the lades are about.all so beware of the imports i think thay are wild caught and pass off as captive bred.ive seen ads offering larg number for sale,this tortoise only lays 1 egg at a time.so thay dont produce many offspring in a season, hence why i think thay are wild caught.
take care jeff

They look great Sarah. You have caught the bug :D . How big are they?
Mine are active all morning and early afternoon. They are fun to watch climb around.

Ye Sarah, don't hold back now!
Perhaps you should just have a baby it would probably be cheaper to house than all these torts! Has your electricty bill not trebled??
I'd love more but I don't have the room!

Hello i managed to get my tortoises off a private keeper who has had them from a hatchling, i have 2 of them. They are 4 inches and love to hide i have them on newspaper at the moment but i am changing to sand and soil.
