    Hypomelanistic Redfoot Tortoise Holdback

    This Hypomelanistic is one of my personal holdbacks that I am offering to the public. I am selling this tortoise as "unsexed" as it is too soon to tell. She/he is at the 5.5in mark and is thriving. Gorgeous markings making it an "Extreme" Brazilian specimen that can pass down these markings to...

    What are sizes that are compatible with breeding for Indian Stars?

    It may be that the smaller male is 'practicing'. I would also guess your larger male mounting your 1350g female is how she became gravid. As for the 5-6in females, they have about another year (at the very least) or two before hitting sexual maturity.

    Was it the only egg that was laid? Did the female bury it or just drop it? Was this his her first egg deposit? Pics of the egg being candeled would help:)

    Incubation success through failure

    I noticed you said you have it in soil. Fine for now but I'd switch it out with vermiculite as soon as you can get some (you can get this at home depot). Soil can become moldy and you don't want that to transfer onto the egg.

    Incubation success through failure

    You got yourself a viable egg there:) I've never NOT incubated my eggs BUT sounds like whatever you got going on there has worked lol. I would keep it moist. Maybe set up your incubator to the same temp the room is. Then day by day slowly bring it up a degree until you reach 84-85 degrees...

    Help is my egg ok?

    Hmmmmm...looks like a bad egg to me. With the cracks in it like that, you should be able to smell a bad odor if it is indeed bad. Take a wif, if it smells throw it out. Also look for mold on or around the cracks. If you find mold, its most likely bad. It looks like it might have gotten too...
