We Picked up Errol today, looking at the the paperwork he hatched in 2013. Currently weighs 101g. I tried to measure him and came out at around 74mm (but I might have got it wrong) which would give him a ratio of 0.249, he also had a poop on the way.DSC_8659_Fotor_zpswlfpicth.jpgDSC_8684_Fotor_zpspkfiy4k0.jpgDSC_8695_Fotor_zps1ag6ccut.jpg

Lovely little tort. Just to say ratios only work on wild caught torts really;)

Great, we only checked the ratio in case he was underweight. It's good to Know we done need to worry. He's settled in alright, 2nd day he was all over the place, 3rd day he started pushing the hides around and now he sleeps out in the open rather than in a hide.
