I've never kept Star Torts, so I hope someone else checks in. I never had any trouble with my Mt.Tortoises, then after 18 yrs in a row in 2010 I had dud eggs from almost every pair. I was shocked and bumbed to the max about this but after talking to several Florida breeders that had the same thing happening we all talked about what might have happened. It seems that we did not have much of a seasonal change that year. Sence you have a Asian tortoises I though you might consider that this might be a reason for infertile eggs. In other words in Asia they have a dry (by Asian standards) Winter and a very hot and wet summer. As I looked back at the weather condishions that year it was very dry and stayed that way for most of the summer. Needless to say I installed the biggest rainmaker I could to be able to make it rain like hell when needed. It makes a heavy streem of water that shoots 25' in the air and a 35 'distance . I thought about big base speekers to make thunder. (lol kindof) You can also try Collett Adams at the Brownville Zoo. She knows all. Vic
