5 perfect eggs
I know of people that keep them together permanently and I don't like it In the wild I'm sure there are the odd occasions that they are mated pretty much straight after laying but they are that sparsely populated that in reality, I'd think the majority do not mate again until a while after
I know a few people who have had a female lay 3 clutches of eggs in one year, even when the males have been separated (as they can retain sperm) but I'd much prefer that they have a nice long break and only have 1 or 2 clutches a year
Oh wow! Looking forward to seeing new baby torts! (Is there a name for a baby tort)? Hatchling?
Life is fragile. Each day really does matter. Live, live, live! Remember to love and let love, too.

Blimey so clever infact she can write an x and also the date
Absolutely awesome mate, so excited again - this was such a learning journey last year - please please share ever stage again
Ooo and off topic for 2 seconds I was looking through someones safari photos here we are going and they had a few pics of some wild leopard torts I think he called them - would that be right?
the 'X' is so that I know which way up they where laid because you don't turn them as you do with tort eggs :rotfl;Originally Posted by Skywatcher, post: 217029
The torts on safari would have been leopard tortoises. Like this one;
