Whenever I post photos or even videos, I am usually showing a lot of the same stuff for example, Western, Eastern & Dalmatian Hermann's, Ibera Greeks, Marginateds, Wood turtles and Blanding's turtles etc...

So, this time, I'll change it up by sharing some shots of just a few of the other species we work with here.....

Geochelone platynota (Burmese star tortoise)

Assumed "Hypomelanistic" Testudo boettgeri (Eastern Hermann's)

By definition, he definitely has a "reduction in melanin" -he has yellow skin, head, tail, plastron and carapace with only minimal dark outlines on carapace.

Testudo anamurensis (Anamur Greek tortoise)

Possible Testudo weissingeri?? (Dwarf Marginated tortoise) Nesting
-Although this subspecies is not actually accepted, there is something different about some of these that we have here, such as, very small size (7-8"), slightly different structure and features and elongated eggs are laid instead of round eggs that are typical of T. marginata.

Nice. Are you getting hatchlings out of the Burmese stars?

Thank you.

Not as of yet, female Studbook # 391, hatched on 10/22/07, is 8.5" SCL and weighs 1,832 grams as of now, so it may be a while.
