My two Herman’s were hatched at the same time but are so different in size as I have not stopped watching them they are both eating and “pooping” ok is this normal to grow at different speeds? Thank you

Hi Dino and welcome to The Tortoise Table,

Yes, it can happen -- in the same way that some people are naturally bigger than other people. It can also be the case though that the larger tortoise is hogging the food a bit. Do they both eat roughly the same amount at meals, or is the larger one crowding the smaller one out?
