A) are you sure they're both females? How oLd are they? It's tricky to sex under 4 years.

B) some tortoises grow a different rates, they are individuals after all! But have you noticed that the larger one is eating more than the other? A slow growing tortoise is a healthier tortoise!

Hope this helps!
