I have 2 red ear sliders. A botu 1 month ago i watched them have intercourse. now the female ziggy is growing at an unpresidented rate. I have seen them have intercourse before but never seen ziggy get bigger. My question is do turtles get huge, and lithargic when they are carring eggs? I would die if there was soemthing else wrong. can someone let me know what they think!!!

thank you for your time

if you arent sure take her and the turtle that had... cough cough... to a vet to see if anything is wrong with the female that the male might have given her. The vet should be able to tell you more than we can

a gravid female turtle will get larger during pregnancy,but take it to a vet just to be sure,and if she is,by a hova bator incubator to incubate the eggs and sell the hatchlings for money,I make big bucks doing that,I am a res and painted turtle breeder.
