:For some odd reason I am guessing chaco tortoise.

Criminy. Tough crowd on this forum!

Absolutely right. Adult female Geochelone chilensis. She had an ova floating free in her coelomic cavity about two years ago which I surgically removed. She had retained sperm and laid two more on her own shortly thereafter. After being kept from the male for a year, she was recombined a few months ago and passed her ova today.

Click on the link below for more chaco pictures as well as a care sheet for this personable species.

I'll try again in the next few days. Special thanks to Darrell for setting up the pictures! Hmm.....time to start pulling out the hard ones (grins).
