Thanks very much for the kind words, both of you.

I think that there are 2 real challenges right now. The first is trying to get what ever founder adults that are in this country into successful breeding groups. I'm surprised/disappointed when I speak to people who have one or 2 tortoises which they have not had success with (in terms of getting offspring) who will not give them up to others who are working with larger groups. I guess I understand being attached to a "pet" but there are larger issues here.

The second challenge obviously is working with F1 Pyxis tortoises to get F2. It is FANTASTIC to see Tim's update, especially with oblonga as it restores hope for me.

Hopefully I will have similar updates soon!
