Here are a couple photos of the 2018 animals mixed with 2019 animals (they are housed into 3 groups based on size; they were only placed together for these photos.)

These represent 8 bloodlines by 4 breeders (Kingsley R, Cutler C, Mark W, & Jeff G.)

That is a great looking group! Always fun to see so many in one spot.

Beautiful group! They sure got big.
Thanks! They still have a ways to go. But, it is fun watching the progress. Also, I am gonna need to find a good looking male or two for these girls. Hard to make tiny tortoises without having both sexes.

Are you sure they are girls now? Can you tell? I think mine were around 2 years old when I could finally tell.

I've got surplus adult males for sale right now. All of mine were temp sexed for female too. I got 8.6. I feel pretty good though. Gus got 15.0 from his temp sexed for female group.

Always great to see your group. Mine do all seem to be female. I am hoping to pick up a male or two this summer.

How are everyone’s Burmese Stars doing? Got any photos?

Had some surprise clutches this summer and one clutch of 8 laid June 3 just hatched today. 31 days in diapause at 67° 12 hrs/ 72° 12hrs. Then in the incubator at 88.5° 12 hrs/ 90.5° 12hrs. Incubation portion was only76 days to pip. Should give females. All 8 in the clutch hatched. Here they are after their first bath and in their brooder box. Big zucchini leaves to hide in and eat as well as a mix of grape leaves, hibiscus flowers, lavatera flowers, some plantain, and a few other weeds, plus some of their eggshells. Won't be any picky eaters in this group.
