Cuteness ahead. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
At the Zoo, March means the beginning of hatching season. Two weeks ago, I took pictures of this.
I took this photo the same day. Most of these eggs are from three subspecies of spider tortoise.
Despite all being from spider tortoises, there is quite a difference in the size of the eggs. Sometimes the really, really little ones don’t hatch. Not always.
He’s easily the tiniest brygooi I have ever seen. And he’s a feisty thing. When he was done with his photo session, he just walked away. Hiding in a shell is for weenies, right?
How tiny is he? I’ll show you.
I’ll try to get some more shots for you today. Happy tortoise day!
