    Bit late, but wanted to offer my congratulations.
    What conditions did you incubate them in?

    Excellent on the erosa ova! I've been getting two clutches of erosa ova annually for years with nothing proving viable. I have my most recent clutch of six, from late July, set up in three different places. No signs of development currently.
    Think about the incubation of pancake totoise eggs, then expound.

    Hi there.

    What temperature did you incubate them at, and how many days before they hatched.

    thanks

    Those serrated marginals are so interesting. Reminds me of spinosa. All kinixys seem like awesome species to me. Congrats Ben!

    Interesting pics.
    Like most of the young kinixys erosa and homeana I've seen, they have those indented scutes, a bit like manouria impressa.
