Hi Karen thanks for the reply. Yes I have kept Leopard tortoises since 1996. Raising a group of captive bred hatchlings I purchased from the UK which I raised to adults hatching a couple of clutches before making the decision to stop breeding them due to the difficulty finding good homes for them. I first bred my Testudo graeca graeca in 1989 and my Testudo hermanni boettgeri the following year. I have been hatching second generation hatchlings from my home bred adult Hermanns for several years now and this year hatched my first second generation Graeca graeca hatchlings again from home bred adults. For the last few years I had stopped hatching the TGG  and SPB for a few years now not even hatching my THB every year. This year I hatched the 2 TGG I have and along with a few THB from last year will be hibernating them from probably Christmas time. Thanks so much for the welcome  it is good to be back.
