I have accumulated a lot photos and video about my Hermanny (Balkan) tortoises.
Now I know - they are Dalmatian tortoises (Testudo hermanni hercegovinensis).
HermanniChris, thank you! :)

I will be a few of their lay out. Maybe someone would be interested.

So I start! :tort:

Spring, 1st of April. Tortoise got out from the hole, in which spent nearly five months.
The hole was dug in the open place, although bushes and trees were close.
In winter in Croatia there ara constant enough heavy rains, almost tort wintered in mixture of water and ground.
It is seen that the appetite is very good after sleeping! :D

Thanks for the video! That is interesting.

However, it also makes me glad I only have the one. Less stressful! :D

Some information about the process of laying eggs.

Three days before the tortoise starts to dig false pits.
Usually, it is from five to eight holes have time to dig.
Understand when it will start a real process is impossible.



A warm welcome to the forum.

Thanks a lot for sharing the videos which I enjoyed. Very interesting.

Today. Carl Gustav decided to escape.
Just for a moment I leaned grid from the barbecue to the step, and the crafty man is here ...





I did not repel him, and looked like he himself will lead ... look in dynamic:

















At the time I had to switch on the video, this is the final phase of the escape


Take care of your pets!
