You are best to press the return key after each pic gaz to leave a space and then they will all line up under each other to the left.. or in the above case after your text

I'm not no expert, far from it. just started raising a tortoise myself and i chose a star and alot of sorces said that they are difficult to keep. So i done loads of research. The bumps i believe are totally natural. depending on wether your babys parents come from, tends to depend on how bumpy they are. i know shlankan stars, like the one i bought tend to have a much bumpyer shell. My little boy still loads smaller, but its nice to see thier patterns change alot.

What mine or yours? from what i know my koopa was incubated as a boy and his tail and where his tail hits his shell would indercate that. May i ask how much she weighs, and who and where did you buy yours from? i had a complacation with mine and i'm still trying to get him to put on good weight. The vet said he had special tortoise worms, that he could have only got from contact from other torts. Which i wasn't to happy about because he cost me abit to buy and i was asured he had no promblems but ever since i had him i knew he wasn't right. but £150 later we are on the right road now, i hope lol
