KevinM,

my herd is increasingly lethargic as the oppressive heat of the lowland desert takes us into its grip...they are aestivating, and a couple of real go-getters still come up in the early morning to feed. Others I don't expect to see until October. Funny how much behavioral variation in the species, even among siblings.

Despite a lot of breeding activity post hibernation emergence, I have no eggs in the incubator, I suspect I have several nests hidden outside which typically will hatch i situ. Some of us who have been breeding Russians awhile are reducing production, as the hatchlings have been sort of a hassle to sell for a reasonable fee, we are still flooded with imports and many folks don't realize (until too late...) the advantage of buying a captive bred, even if it initially costs more. No $ is saved if you take (and often should) a wild caught to the vet... Good luck with your tortoises, I hope you are well set up to prevent flooding. Vic H. Imperial Valley, CA.
