I wonder if they realise they are mother and child? Beautiful hatchling and Mum is gorgeous too! Is she UK (ok Jersey!) bred? She has a fantastically smooth shell!!! :wub: Look forward to seeing the pictures of the newbies!!!

hi Dawn.that is Benjie the one with the bad leg who digs her nest with her good leg alone .i have had her over 25 years the old lady i got her from must have stood on it she had her for 25 years herself ,bought her from a local petshop when she was a lot smaller( the tortoise not the old lady)she has a complete break and seperation of the bone .our vet wasnt happy removing her leg so we are careful to make sure she has easy access to the nest site or otherwise a lot of pacing makes her leg sore from dragging it.her hatchlings are incredible real little fatties.not long to hatching now i think.
