Hi all - I'm new on here, & have only had one tortoise for about two years - she's a Hermann's & now 11 years old - gifted to me by the first owners after their child left home. She was a 'he' until deciding to lay eggs on my watch!


I work in a school science department, & we have our scales serviced & checked most years, certainly after two years. The man who does this, &  also services our microscopes, uses a check weight to re-calibrate each of our scales in the labs. Some vary wildly!


I googled, & there is some good advice on line regards checking the accuracy of your scales (& for diddly torts accuracy must be paramount I guess!)




Lots of other sites exist with advice on this.
