Chelonian Library 5 – Incubating Chelonian Eggs
2020, hardcover, around 252 pages, numerous illustrations. This book provides an up to date source of incubation data of more then 200 Turtle- and Tortoise species and subspecies currently breed. 200 tabular overviews give information on humidity, temperature, clutch size and period of incubation. Further more Andreas Hennig describes useful incubators, breeding substrates and temperature dependent gender. He collected data not only from publications or personal experience, but also included unpublished information gathered from a lot of breeders he knows personally. It’s sad to say, but many species won’t survive without effective captive breeding and Andreas Hennigs book is a fundamental tool to do so.
