8 months and still an inch?
well u can use gravel if it\'s bigger than ur baby\'s head so it won\'t try to eat it..
am not sure of the galapagos but if it has what a turtle needs then ok why not:)

Just keep in mind that galapagos are land turtles and RES are water turtles, they need to be in water to eat, drink, poop, and swim.:D

Dude, there are stripes! Right under the waterline you can see a semi-red V which is the stripe.

Also, a galapagos tortoise do not have same habitats as a RES.

Captain_Turtle is right .. he\'s an RES .. his head is just at the right spot to maybe not see his red stripes.
