Re: Infertile Eggs? PLEASE HELP...

Re: Infertile Eggs? PLEASE HELP...

Well I don\'t know how old she is because she was a christmas present and the guys at the pet store didn\'t really take care of her, but her shell tints are dark, doesn\'t that mean she is older. And the people at the pet store kept her in a small tank with only water that went just over her shell. ...

How do you know if your turtle has laid an egg(s). I think my turtle is discharging infertile eggs because in the last few days she has let out somethings that look wierd. What do the eggs look like, are they super tiny? She is a RES.

Gender Confusion

My turtle (RES) is a little past 3 1/2 inches long, from top of shell to bottom. It\'s nails are kinda long, but not even close to most of the male RES\'s nails that I have seen. I thought it was a boy, but now my mother and I think it is a girl. Do you know what it is?
