    Reports and photos (though Facebook) are suggesting that Nogeyama Zoo has managed to successfully hatch at least one Ploughshare Tortoise. Can anyone confirm this ?

    Well after the tuatara hatching in Chester, this is another great great great breeding achievement for zoos globally!

    Any info on the group size and make-up, FL?
