We've had a warmer than usual winter so far this year. Today we got into the low 70s. Over the last weekend I heard scratching coming from one of the supposing sleeping tortoises. It was my adult female hermanns. So Monday I moved her outside to her summer enclosure and turned the heated crock back on for a heated hide. Today she laid eggs on the surface and destroyed all but one. This has happened before. Her eggs are getting bigger each year which is a good thing. I'm really not interested in being a breeder but enjoy raising the hatchlings.
