Our Florida box turtles (Terrapene c. bauri) waste no time taking advantage of their pond. Two males keep a watchful eye on one another as the older one tries to breed with the female in the foreground.

Rainy, cooler weather followed by sunny, warm conditions definitely brings on mating as we can easily see here with this pair of Red Foot tortoises (Chelonoidis carbonaria). #redfoot #redfoottortoise #chelonoidiscarbonaria #chelonia #chelonian #chelonians #conservation #gardenstatetortoise #theturtleroom #insta_turtle_addicts #_iliketurtles

Family portrait much? Well not really. The adult male and female Egyptian tortoises (Testudo kleinmanni) in this photo definitely don't care much for the baby. The photo was put together for size reference as this is the Northern Hemisphere's smallest tortoise species. Adults are fully grown at only 3-4" typically, so this baby sure is tiny! T. kleinmanni is critically endangered but facilities like ours are working hard to propagate them in captivity. There's been quite a bit of success so far worldwide with them.
Check out my article in Reptiles Magazine from last month for more info on this perfect indoor tortoise.

Somebody starts morning fresher than others 😳

Three month old Burmese star tortoises (Geochelone platynota) and a two month old Indian star tortoise (Geochelone elegans) enjoying some moistened Mazuri Tortoise Diet this evening after devouring freshly picked weeds just yesterday.
