Abstract: Egyptian tortoises were collected in the field and X-rayed at 2-4 week intervals during two breeding seasons. Females laid 2-3 clutches per year, each consisting of 1-3 large eggs. The internesting period was estimated to be 20-30 days. The nest was a shallow pit at a base of a bush. The breeding biology of Testudo kleinmanni is similar to that of other small highly specialised tortoises.
