    Thanks for the input, Bill.

    Yes the nests in that study were most all 2000, with one from 1999. SO we are talking almost 20 years ago. SO much has happened since then with the equipment we meer mortals have access to now! We can now see a complete time profile of the temperatures. I do that with every clutch of G platynota eggs I incubate. Would love to see if in a few in situ nests. I'm trying to get the Park Warden at Minsontaung Wildlife Sanctuary to put a few data loggers in some nests for me for G platynota. Communication is very slow and somewhat limited by her limited English and my total lack of Burmese!

    Howdy! I’m sure I’ll need to make space at some point but probably not until next year ...if I have the heart to part with any of these guys. Lol
