I wanted to give a huge thank you and recommendation to Randy Betz (@shellfreak) at Tortstork!

He ships tortoise eggs, usually within 48 hours after they are laid. I bought a Russian tortoise egg from him and we took a chance for him to send me one that had developed for 68 days and was due to hatch any day. What happened to it? I've been keeping a separate thread updated daily:


I highly recommend Tortstork for anybody who is interested in experiencing the opportunity to hatch your own tortoise egg. He also has beautiful babies of various species if you prefer a tortoise already hatched. Check out his website at www.tortstork.com
