I found these 2 tortoises laying eggs in my back yard on Monday they were about 20 meters apart, there was another nest about 40 meters away but the bandicoots had already got at them. I covered both nests with wire crates for protection. The hatchlings will be able to get through the wire.Attached File  26112017a.jpg   290.67KB   13 downloadsAttached File  26112017b.JPG   160.18KB   13 downloadsAttached File  26112017c.JPG   223.87KB   12 downloadsAttached File  26112017d.JPG   310.23KB   12 downloads

There were another 2 tortoises out there this evening both laying eggs near the other nests, it seems that 6 pm is egg laying time.

I doubt that I will get pics of these as they hatch, it's unlikely that I'll be there at the time. 

Here is a pic of some that Ronda found in the vegi garden a few years ago she helped some of them out of the shell, there were 8 of them.

 

I took a video the other day of one of them laying eggs but I don't know how to edit or up load

Very nice!! Was worried birds would get them or something.

Me neither on videos. Photos is as advanced as it gets for me.
