Hi thanks Johnathan - should have known I could rely on you!!!
The only thing is that the measurements can only be used for tortoises over 100mm so not for the little ones. This makes it difficult to judge the small ones ideal weight especially if you want to hibernate them (I would like to do a short hibernation this year but not sure if certainly Herbie and possibly not Daisy will be this length) Dan seems to come up with some very precise weight/length recommendations and would love to know how!!

It's a bit low for the larger sizes so usually add 10g to what is on the graph
