i hatched this little one among others 18 months ago and i have been really careful with their diet.its not the first time i have raised leopards these are definately the best shape though.i just hope i have finally got things right at last.this is the same tortoise at a couple of days old and again at 18 months.

Hello there Terry, :D

She is beautiful! :wub:
Leo's do have the most gorgeous markings.
Have you found other factors such as hydration are also involved in producing the best shape?

Bruce,thanks for looking im pleased with these.
Dawn , yes this was one of the herd,
Paula its complicated i binned the humid hide as most of mine hardly used it they all prefered a drier hide although the humidity in my cellar is about 70% .it is a lot lower under the lamps when they are on.i really think it is down to a good diet.i spend a lot of time picking weeds at the weekend i cut and chop up grasses daily to mix with their weeds.
