    Possible egg infertility

    Congrats! I'm hoping that could be my issue- as I have experienced this before with other species also. My group has laid multiple clutches with no fertile eggs. Usually, spring/summer time breeding ramps up, and i should get many clutches. I hope you have continued success! -joby

    Possible egg infertility

    The tortoises are not related, as they were all imports years and years ago. As I stated in my first post these eggs were laid on 12/19/21. Do you think it's too late to cover the eggs now?

    Yucatan Box Turtle (Terrapene mexicana yucatana)

    I'd be curious to talk to/see who keeps and/or breeds Yucatan box turtles in captivity. If there is anyone in tortoise forum land, please contact me. I'd also be interested in seeing enclosures inside and outside, diet, anything honestly. Information is very minuscule and lacking with this...

    My simplistic enclosures

    Currently its tortoises that have been given to me from people not wanting them anymore, or dropped off at my door. I have a male redfoot, some greek tortoises, and an sri lankan star. The only group I currently have right now is some Egyptians I keep strictly inside.

    My simplistic enclosures

    I have not posted unfortunately on here (sorry!) in a long time. I thought I'd share my enclosures now my plants have bloomed and taken off. The species of plants I have in each enclosure are hostas, spirea, hibiscus, and maiden grass. Most are simple but the species I keep enjoy it. -Joby

    My new enclosures

    Well here's what I've done with the enclosures so far. I've built each enclosure to be 8'x8' and stacked 4 timbers to be around a foot or so in height. I used 3 1/4" lag bolts to keep them together. Here's some pics of what is done.

    Best kind of wood for outdoor enclosures? These are what i use, landscape timbers from lowes. They hold up pretty well and isn't too expensive. I also use used materials such as old waterbed frames.
