    I have a new species, platyona! I can't wait to see them grow!

    Here is thread on raising up stars it includes some closed chamber conversation. https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/how-to-raise-a-healthy-star-tortoise.159167/ People range from insulated and sealed plywood or pvc to aquariums with tents over them to hold in humidity. Plywood wants to rot...

    Extinct or Alive’s Forrest Galante using my Knives!

    That’s the one. It was pretty surreal. It was filmed in Brooklyn at the time and we stayed in Queens. Still my only non airport trip to NY. We could see the big buildings from our hotel, but never had time to get over there. We did eat a decent amount of pizza though.

    Extinct or Alive’s Forrest Galante using my Knives!

    I recently made a couple of knives for Forrest Galante. From Animal Planet’s Extinct or Alive. Also, the guy who successfully led the expedition to find the once thought extinct Fernandina Island Galapagos Tortoise. Anyway, the knives recently showed up on his Instagram stories.

    Thanks. I am happy to have them regardless of the gender. But, if you plan to breed them, you are likely to be shooting for a good ratio of males to females.

    Thanks for playing along! I certainly would be happy with three females. It is a lot easier to go shopping for a couple of good looking males than to go looking for females.

    So, feel free to post your guesses. I find myself influenced by Markw84’s guesses. Therefore, I had better put mine in before he guesses or else he will change my mind before I manage to type out a guess. Which I find hard as I get mixed signals from overall shell shape, anal scutes, growth...

    This is the third round of sex guessing for these guys (and hopefully gals). I thought it would be fun to see how they change over time and I am aware that they are still a bit young. But, guessing is still fun.
