I have 3 sulcatas and they are all the same age, (different clutches that hatched during the same month)when i got them a year ago they were all the same size. i took them all to the vet for a general checkup and one of them had worms, we arent sure which. so we put all of them on panacure and they are fine now but the one on the far right (grumpy)hast grown at all. he does weigh a little more than when we first got him but not much. could this be because he was the one with worms and he wasnt getting much nutrition out of his food, also he only likes grasses and leaft green where the other 2 that are growing will eat mazurie tortoise diet. which has more protien could this be the cause. im sure its nothing and hes eating fine and seems active so i shouldnt worry but if anyone has experienced this could u hel ty
