This allows the hatchlings to grow before their first hibernation. however  in captivity, there is no fixed on the breeding season and that means most of the breeding and eggs production can occur at any time of the year.

Female tortoises are able to store sperm in the fallopian tubes, the fertile eggs, so they can produce up to three years after mating. they has two ovaries in the coelimic cavity - eggs are released by the ovaries and then travel down the paired oviducts. Storage of sperm, means is, they do not have to mate frequently to keep the population in their natural habitat. The added benefit of mixing the paternity of the hatchlings ensures there is less likelihood of interbreeding in smaller populations.

The eggs are deposited in the fallopian tube, where the fertilized egg and the shell are also produced. Female tortoises can sometimes eggs, even if have never met. Therefore it is important that you should be aware of signs that carry the eggs.
