Vic:

I don’t know how long it takes for Burmese Mountain tortoises from breeding to egg laying but I would suspect it is about the same as with the multi-clutch produces. It is important for tortoise keeps to understand that just because a tortoise has been bred doesn’t necessarily mean it will produce eggs. It is true that breeding can stimulate ovulation but there are also environmental factors that stimulate the follicles to mature in preparation for ovulation. If these environmental factor have not been experienced then no eggs! The tortoise must also be healthy. The most important environmental triggers are light cycle, temperatures cycles, and annual barometric pressure cycles. Different species require different environmental changes. You may get breeding all year but egg only in season.

Good luck
