Worried horsefield weight
Posted: 14/10/2013 by Kimberleigh

I'm a bit worried about my 3 year old horsefield. He is sleeping a lot more recently so I started browsing online and I'm no longer worried about his behaviour but have come across some sort of weight chart that states it may not be accurate but was very inaccurate for my little Ronnie. His shell is 9.5cm and he weighs 85.4grams. This seems very light in comparison to other torts I have read about. Can anyone advise?

It is very important to weigh young torts weekly & adults monthly. Keep dated records, so that you can monitor it's progress.
How long have you had it ?
Is it feeding well on suitable food ?
