Default Summer Thoughts

While covered in snow here in NJ I began looking through my photos from this past summer to put me in a better state of mind...

Here are a few shots of my T. hermanni hermanni from Majorca, Spain outside on a bright and sunny day. Can't wait to get them back out into their pens!

I know what you mean, Chris, am so sick of winter already, can't wait for the spring to get my torts out where they belong

Your pictures are stunning, have you bred from her and the male?

Thank you

I am surely NOT a winter person!

There is a group of adults I have from this locality as well as other localities. So far, this group has produced one hatchling. The other eggs unfortunately went bad after a few weeks. I believe it was mainly due to them being incubated at too high of a humidity. My Italian and French tortoise eggs seem to handle humidity much better. This time around I'll be incubating the Spanish eggs on a dry substrate.

Those lovely majorcans do have very bright colour contrast! Those little tigers make me dream of summer days too. Great to see them again.
