    I know it's probably futile given how few have been bred in the US. I have attempted to reach out privately without success, so I'm hoping there's someone lurking out there with information. Are TSD conditions even known for this species? I know they need a diapause and incubate generally like Pyxis sp. Climate data suggests their native range is a few degrees colder than southern Madagascar.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I only know of two breeders who could help with that species. Andrew Hermes at Arizona Tortoise Compound, he breeds them. And Chris Leone at Garden State Tortoise.
