These are from 5 to 7 years old a little small but grown slowly. They seem to get a spurt in growth when they move up into the adults area and graze freely. Although these have unrestricted access to grass already. Thanks for looking and your kind comment.

Sorry no recent hatchling pictures, not bred for years all Leopard eggs are destroyed without exception. What I can do is show you a picture of one of my captive bred hatchlings, This one I have kept for myself. My interest is very much the raising of tortoises and trying to get as close as I can to adults that look the same as wild caught individuals. Thgis one was growing so well then of course reached a size where it needed to join the adults outdoors 24/7. Unrestricted access to graze has spoilt that a bit but this is  still a healthy hardy young Leopard.
