That's a really pretty turtle! I love the markings.

Amazing colouration :) I've got 2 adult R. p. incisa, quite similar but not as round shell-wise, beautiful genus though. Do you have adults that you have bred, or did you buy these youngsters in?

Best,
Paul

I bought a 2.1 group last year as WC. One of the males is smaller, more like a juvenile. The eggs these were hatched from were laid in Sept. and one hatched in early April, while the other hatched about 3.5 weeks later. I have four other eggs as well, two laid in late Jan., and the other in early April. I am hoping they hatch out as well, but it will probably be awhile as the first two took almost eight months!

Thanks for the comments! :lol:

A few habitat pictures as well.

Wow I had no idea the eggs incubated for that long! Nice enclosures for the hatchlings too, are you keeping them together or separate?

What kind of foods do your adults go for? Mine seem to love worms, mealworms, box turtle pellets and romaine lettuce.

Best,
Paul
