Hope to get some new baby’s from other species this year!

Some quick shots!
Breeding works good this year.
Got the first fertile eggs of my R. Punctularia and C. Amboinensis.
I also get the second clutch from my P. nanus this year. Total 11 eggs 6 of them look good!
The spekes also doing good in their outdoor enclosure!

Congratulations! How exciting. Although common in their native range, you just don't see R punctularia much at all, let alone hatching them!

thank you yes they aren’t common in captivity. Two years ago there were an import of some animals from South America to Europe.
i bought a pair. The female laid 5 infertile eggs last year because my male wasn’t adult I think. This year mating was successful. The female laid until today 7 eggs in total. Just one was infertile.
two are already hatched and four are in the Incubator and look good.
Incubation was from 27.6-23.9 first hatchling second one hatched 25.9

90 days sounds like a long time for an aquatic turtle, but these eggs look more like tortoise eggs than aquatic eggs. Are the shells as hard as a tortoise egg? What temp did you incubate?

Thanks for the great pictures and for sharing the information.

yes it’s really long but Rhinoclemmys are semi aquatic turtles..punctularia also stays out of the water for longer times.
the shells are “hard” same as tortoises have. I incubate them at 29 degrees Celsius.
but the long incubation time is typical for some South America species. i also have Platemys platycephala eggs at the moment.
one egg was laid at 5 june this year. The egg looks good but this species take 110-200 days until they hatch. Hope to show you hatchlings of this species too
