The females were producing plenty of eggs right up until I sold the group, however the fertility of the eggs dropped right off and I produced only a few hatchlings in that last year. It was fun while it lasted. Now my 13 yr. old daughter has taken over and breeds corn snakes which she really enjoys.

Group grazing on clover in the backyard.




Never got tired of watching them hatch.


Now back to m'cycles. Pic taked near Banff a few weeks ago.



I love turtles. make a special point of getting them off the road every time I see one.
This thread has a recurring turtle theme, which I like, also.

Lots of Painteds around here, and some Snappers.

very cool pics of those baby tortoises.

I have a huge soft spot for reptiles and amphibians and most other animals. But I have no love for anything with an exoskeleton and that includes crustaceans and similar beasties.
