    Hello and welcome to the forum! Is Burt your Russian? Have any photos of him?

    There are good reputable breeders here on this forum so I'm sure you could find a cherry head here. Although you won't know if a baby is a male or female until it is several years old. Why a female?

    I have some hatchlings. But i also have one egg. Not sure if you would be interested in hatching your own cherry head tortoise? The egg is being incubated at 89.4F. I’m not going to say it’s a guaranteed female. But the chances it swings that way are greater than becoming a male. Something to thing about. If you don’t already have an incubator, you would have to get one. If you have any questions, reach out to me. Tortstork@gmail.com. Good luck in your hunt.
