I think my turtle\'s pregnant. she digs and digs the rocks in her tank. I got the two turtles from my teacher for the summer and it looked like they were always mating. I am not sure but she acts like she needs someplace to bury something.

A good way i found to tell if my females are pregnant is if i can feel eggs in the little pouch near the back legs. When you hold the turtle head away from you sick your fingers in the space between thier shell and the back legs as far in to the shell area as you can get. If you feel harden lumps then they are about 1-2 weeks away from laying thier eggs. This method is not fool proof but it really helped me to determine which females needed to be seperated out to lay thier eggs and all of then that I felt the lumps on layed eggs.
