Kinixys spekii

TKC is currently working with a large group of wild caught and captive born K. spekii.  Though this species is not readily hatched in the US yet, they seem to be quite hardy captives and many folks are working to reproduce them. Their numbers are expected to grow significantly in the US in the next few years. 

 

David Mifsud, James Badman, Chris Bednarski, Andrew Hermes, and Kingsley Rodrigo are producing this species in small numbers. 

As of June 2020, we are working with 8 different captive born genetic lineages, and more than 10 wild caught lineages.  We have hatched more than 10 specimens from two different females over the last two years and look forward to 2020 production.    

TKC is currently looking to expand our Kinixys spekii project - please reach out if you are working with this species: KinixysCoOp@gmail.com

Below, you will see a collage of some of our Speke's Hingeback Tortoises. COMING SOON!
