Hi everybody!
I came back with this good news:
My first Kinixys belliana zombensis hatchling!
The colors are very different from nogueyi and from zombensis/nogueyi crossbreed.
The carapace does not have small brown spots of nogueyi hatchlings, the head is yellow with black nose.
If I remember correctly I still have 9 fertile eggs in the incubator, two of these are of the same egg laying, they should hatch within two weeks.

OHHHHH MAN. So awesome. Love this species. Congrats on them hatching. You can send some my way :D


Do you have Natalensis too? Would love to see some babies of those if you have been successful with them.

This one has the spots on the scutes.
Resembles his father very much!
