Mama tortoise digging her nest.
The proud papa had to come see what I was doing!
Later that evening, I dug up the nest and found 9 perfect eggs.
This is our second clutch of eggs in less than 7 months. The first clutch of 3 eggs (one was punctured and had to be discarded) was laid September 24th of last year. After incubating 150 days, the first baby hatched February 22nd and it's sibling began hatching on April Fool's Day.
Baby number 1 after hatching 2/22/2009.
Baby number 2 still mostly in the egg on April 2nd.
The Easter Bunny was indeed good to us this year. Darlene and I wish you all a Happy Easter!
