One of the staff members at Garden State Tortoise was very lucky to witness something incredibly rare. Western Hermann’s tortoise was giving birth to a hatch when he noticed that one hatchling was having an issue breaking out of its egg. While it is always recommended not to interfere with nature, he decided to step in and it turns out he did the right thing!
As he took a closer look, the man realized it was actually two babies in the one egg! This is a very rare occurrence and he had to act fast in order to save the twins. They were stuck together and needed to be carefully separated. Clever guy used dental floss to detach them from one another, and a few days later he was successful.
