    Ach. :( That's terrible news Josh. I know that nature has her own scheme though...

    I do think it's a good reason to be able to keep your little one! After all, what's one more tort? :D :D (Don't tell you parents I said that, ok)?

    I can't keep Buddha. If anything it has been a trigger for me to sell more of last years babies. In all honesty the chances of having more dead-in-shell babies will only get higher if I keep more related tortoises.

    None of my current adults are related, but if I keep these 4 I am potentially letting 4 females breed with their Dad, or however many males breed with their Mum & Sister. I have spoken to a fellow breeder who also thinks it's best to sell or re-home 2 of last years babies. I don't know how I'm going to pick two of last years babies but it is sensible for me to do

    What species does she have? I get a shock every time our eggs hatch as I forget how small they are!
