So I hatched my two eggs from Tortstork.com.
Everything is going perfectly! But I'm constantly scrutinizing every single physical variation between the 2 little dudes!
Mentally of coarse!! My babies have 3 separate enclosers right now !!! So dont get worried!!! My plastic bin hatchling enclosures are working perfectly.
But the 2 display striking physical differences....

1) One has striking serrations along its shell
2) same guy is really boldly colored. Dark black skin, and plastron. With really defined bold red colors. The other is grayer, and paler.
3) The same one is the dominant bully one.
Hmmmmmmm.......

Anyone ever experienced the hatchling with serrations before...???
Well, one is definately more of He/she and the larger, but less boldly colored one is She/he....
Hold on, I'll post some pics after soak.

I think more and more about more male names for "Lilith" every time I pick Him/her up. You can really feel the serraccians on the sides of its shell. Really dark black all over its body.
---This one also ended up with 1 deformed scute that appears to have started splitting, but couldn't finish the process so it's just an interesting marking instead.
