Tortoise update

On Tuesday just after I got back from the airport run I went down the garden to feed the tortoises and lo and behold Tog was again in the process of laying another batch of eggs. This photo I took looks pretty much the same as the previous one but as far as I could see there were only about 4 or 5 eggs this time around. Clearly randy old Tom has been a very busy boy!!

That is awesome!! What kind of tortoise are they? We were offered a 3 toed box turtle from a neighbor that had found her in their yard. Since it was middle of winter we took her gave her the type of habitat she needed and let her go in the forest beginning of summer. We miss her!

Congratulations Tog! How I miss having my old sulcata Tetchie around, dropping eggs all over the place. :)

Asha we have never managed to hatch any unfortunately!!

katabug sad to let her go but I guess you did the right thing.

jen the whole process was a lot quicker this time around. I don't ever recall them laying eggs twice so close together before!!
