Hello Guys,

thought about sharing these lovely oldies with you :) These are all 60 year old and over Testudo Graeca Iberas, they have been living all their lives in an outdoor yard with access to very little soil and fed on lettuce and tomatoes all their lives. They were laying infertile eggs wherever it happened. Two years ago they were taken to a suitable habitat with soil and whatever they may find in the wild, in their first year they had 9 hatchlings and this year they have dug 4 nests :)

It's amazing the change an appropriate habitat can bring. :) Thanks for sharing. ;)
