Very nice colors.
Looks like you have plenty more to follow.
Do you get hatchlings year round?

I love the way you can see two layers in the egg. I never seem to notice that on other peoples eggs, but notice a lot on yours. My one leopard egg that hatched didn't seem to have two layers either.
Love the split/crooked scute one.

The egg itself... of a tortoise egg is composed of two distinct layers: a hard, calcareous outer layer and a fibrous inner layer. Pores in the outer layer of the shell allow for gas exchange while the embryo is growing

Do you know why somes inner layer are not as noticeable? I've only had the one hatch. However, it's not noticeable that there is two layers.
