The firstfruits (Spotted Turtle)

Post by Josh Holbrook » June 5th, 2012, 4:24 am

Just had my first (of 12) egg hatch. Unfortunately, I accidentally dropped half the eggs a while back, so it looks like there's only 5 more coming. Oh well - they sure are cute.

That is beyond cute, Josh. That is well into the realm of adorable.

Always neat to watch the spots over time as the grow. Wonderful captives.

Thanks all.

Gila - I avoid that problem; my group of 7 has lived quite comfortably for quite a while now in two 20-gal tanks. They prefer such a swampy, enclosed habitat that (to an extent) the less water, the better.
