Break On Through

...to the other side. Yeah those were some of the words from the tune Break on Through by The Doors but no this is not a post about that song or about The Doors. Still, there is a little to do with each of them in the accompanying video because not only are the subjects of it breaking on through to the other side, babies taking a  chance with us, but they are doing it through their own unique doorways.


Following the advice of Jim Morrison, the first of two  Hermann's Tortoises hatchlings is beginning to 'break on through to the other side' as it is making its way out of its egg on the night of July 27, 2017. My female laid four eggs back in very late may or very early June, only two were fertile. At five years old, this is only the second breeding in which the male fired live rounds - so to speak. They also produced a baby back in February, so he probably started live fire in the fall of last year.

If you were not bored to tears by this, you can also see Break On Through Part Two at this link: https://youtu.be/PkhWLDQ6SY8; it was made a short while after part one and shows both eggs hatching.

All the best,
Glenn B
