Can anyone recommend what type of scales I should buy for keeping track of our tortoise's weight?

We haven't collected him/her yet but I am getting everything ready.

Hello there. For a small tortoise, scales weighing up to 1kg are useful. Here is a link to some you might find useful:

Over 1kg I use digital bathroom scales. I weigh torts up to 3.4 Kg and find them accurate enough. I hope this helps.

Take each reading a few times to increase can always check by weighing shop bought products in minimal packaging.
