Angulata are known to deposit one egg at a time. Though 2 at a time is noted in the literature, I have never had that happen, until tonight! My big female, studbook #1, at 1400g and 8"SCL dropped these two eggs tonight.

That is really cool. Congratulations. I’m sure it’s on the forum somewhere, but how many adults do you have? And do you get eggs regularly? How many have you hatched?

They are a cool tortoise, we had a couple at the zoo I worked for, but they were not breeding size yet.

Hey there. I have 2 adult males and 2 adult females. The 2 females produced 15 eggs in 2018 and 2 so far this year. I am starting to get some fertility and I have an egg now that is 72 days into development and the embryo looks strong. This is a species that we absolutely do not count until hatched! I hope to have good news in the next few weeks.
