    Shock

    after 15 years of having female turtles I woke up this morning and found an egg in the tank!! I have had a panic day re-scaping the entire enclosure to now add a nesting area so whoever has eggs can lay them. Thankfully they will not be fertile, unless Goldie the cooter is still fertile after being with the little male map turtle before we got her!!

    I do wonder what they would taste like!!

    According to the net... red eared sliders are mature at 5 year old, so if its one of those two they are a wee bit slow, goldie the cooter is suppose to mature about 5 also so would make it about right for her.

    The weird thing is - according to eggsperts, all female turtles lay eggs regardless of mating - like chickens, but my two old ladies never have.
