Took this picture the other day and couldn't resist posting it ☺.
Newest hatchling only few days old on the left. Middle one just turned 1 and the one one the right will be 2 next month. All from the same mum.

One year on I thought I would update this thread.
The 3 Tortoises are all a year older and doing well. Took an updated photo of them with one of this year's Hatchlings.
The one on the left is a few days old. The next one is a year old 30g. The next is 2 years old 52g. The last one on the right is now 3 years old 91g.
All from the same mum.

Yes, so far I have kept all my hatchlings. They are taking over. My wife is very tolerant at the moment. I have a large garden and room to expand for more hatchling. Oldest hatchlings are now 3 years old. I know at some point I will have to part with some of them.
I am often asked by family and friends for one but am very reluctant as not convinced they will do the neccessary research or have the long term commitment.
I will need to make some decisions in the future but for now I am just enjoying them.

That's lovely, it's nice to be able to keep them I have plenty of space so I decided to keep some of mine from the last two years, it's nice to watch them grow. :)
