This is a sulcata, I'm not sure about the age. He's obviously young but we have had him (rescued) for about 6 months. He has grown a little but not very much. Many times he seems less interested in grazing than my other sulcatas and his ventral shell is somewhat soft. His dorsal shell has some funny "wrinkles" in them. I don't think this is normal but I have never had one this young before, so I am looking for some advice.
He is about 3 inches in diameter. He is fed a handfull of store bought spring mix in the morning and evening. He is also allowed to graze on our lawn for about an hour or more each day. He is outside during the day (we live in AZ) now that it is summer time. He has hideboxes, shade and all. We have two other sulcatas and they are doing great.

Thanks
Rich
