    Last night we had a new record set by one of our best producing female aldabra tortoises, Peanut! Last night at about 9:20pm she laid her fourth clutch consisting of eleven eggs for this season. Actually this was two new records, this was also the first clutch we ever had in April.

    @ALDABRAMAN I know it was a while ago, but I wanted to ask (I assume you have the records). :D
    I read that Peanut also laid a fifth clutch about a month later. Just curious, how many hatchlings did you get from these 2 clutches? (Two reasons I ask. 1. Due to the above normal number of clutches & 2. Due to being 'outside' of normal laying season)
