hi the little Algerian has left the egg lol.just a couple of pictures in these you can see the tiny little white spur on its thigh also notice how the plastral pattern hasnt developed yet and is just a smudge.i will try and remember to post this ones plastron at about 6 month's old to show how the pattern becomes more defined.on this one you can see the benefit of letting them stay in the egg until they are ready ,the yolksac has gone completely and all you can see is a dry scar.this one was trying to bite me and get away all the time i was holding it.

Awww Terry, that is the sweetest little tort! :wub:

Wasn't it the Algerian ones you spoke of when you said some only weigh 6-8g? What did this little one weigh?

I'm glad I haven't hatchlings... I would struggle to let any go!!

That has to be one of the prettiest babies ever- and that attitude!! Girl power or what, no way is that a boy.

I could almost switch from Hermanns! :blush: :wub:
