My 2 year old leopard tortoise won't grow.
Hi, I bought 2 Leopard tortoises 2 1/2 years ago. They were about 2 months old when I 1st got them.
One is now over 6 inches big, but my other one whom is the same age is only about 3 inches. Infact my other baby leopards are just as big as her. She is a blonde leopard tortoise, she eats very well, very strong and seems extremely lively and healthy. I know leopards differ in their growth, but this is ridiculous, she is so tiny for her age. Oh, and she completely stops eating during winter,although I keep them inside with UV. Her stool is white during winter, propbably from eating her own fat. But she has a sensational appetite about 9 months out of the year. I live in Florida and the winters are short.
I am so baffled, she seems very healthy but all my babie tortoises are outgrowing her and she's going on 3 years old.
