Are you Kitty M ? I think I may have caught up on your torts experiences elsewhere.

Thank you! And yes...I would be Kitty M! I'm also on the TFO forum, Facebook, and Instagram, so you likely have seen me on one of those. I live in Tucson, Arizona.

oh yes sorry it's on your avatar ! keep the info and pictures coming won't you. it's so interesting to hear experiences in other countries. I think I use to watch a chap on u tube who had a rescue in America too, loved reptiles but had lots of tortoises and I learnt lots. I will have to catch up on that also. I miss Steve Irwin because he was a real champion on raising the profile and plights of animals and reptiles, CB

Now that the Forum is back up, I thought I would share some updates and photos. All the hatchlings are doing great, and growing very smoothly. Some have hit the 50-gram mark, mostly the Iberas that grow bigger and faster anyway.

Hatched a beautiful, dark Testudo graeca marokkensis this weekend. I have never seen a darker Moroccan Greek before, so wanted to share.
Produced by Tortstork.

Yeah, sorry about that. I don't know why it does that. I'm using my mobile phone and have to copy the image link from another source and paste it into the code of my post. When I preview my post before submitting, the photo looks fine. Then I submit and it ends up huge.

There's another tortoise forum I am on, and their format allows me to upload my photos directly, so they appear smaller in the post.

Gorgeous Tortoise. Can you give us a bit of background on Ma and Pa and how they all live over your way. CB
