Aloha!! I have a 4 year old female (as far as we can tell). She weighs in at 21 pounds. She is very precious and personable. Thank you for the info so I may better care for her. We live on Maui on an acre and she is a happy girl. And yes, VERY STRONG. Enjoy your tortoises!

Aloha again! Be careful what and how much you feed them. Their shells will pyramid and cause other shell problems, both top and bottom, some requiring shell surgery. ENJOY!
