Super duper sorry for getting back to you so late I didn't realize that something I guess happened with the app and I was no longer getting notifications. I also have just been afk from online stuff for a while as well. The only thing I did change was I am not maintaining the humidity. It sits at about 0-20% in the incubator now. I dont actively manage the humidity anymore. Not sure why those ones hatched so fast comparatively from the rest.Hello!
I've been searching around the pancake tortoise section of the forum and I came across this thread. It's been awesome reading through all of this, going from failure to success!
I do have a few questions, as I keep pancakes of my own and have had success breeding at the facility I work at. I am curious about the individual tortoise from 2017/2018 you mentioned that only took 83 days incubation...whereas the rest seem to be in the 130-150 day range. Did you do something different for this guy incubation wise? Or did you do the 40-50% humidity, 86 Fahrenheit strategy you mentioned awhile back. Just curious as to why you think this guy took so much longer to hatch out.
Hopefully this year has been productive as well!
