I think it\'s when the female is constantly trying to come on the basking area and won\'t stop digging. That\'s just what i\'ve heard.

Here, i found this over at www.resoasis.com/breeding.htm

it\'s a good site...Enjoy

\"Red eared sliders will only lay eggs when they find a suitable nesting site. They can hold eggs up to 3 years! You will notice the female spending more time basking and digging in the gravel of your tank. They also will loose some of their appetite. In some cases, the female will lay the eggs in the water. This can pose problems because the male res will eat them. You should put your red eared slider in a 5\' by 3\' Tupperware dish or whatever you find and fill it with vermiculite. Place the red eared slider in here for about 6 hours. If she lays the eggs, she will dig a 6\" hole and plop them in. Carefully remove the eggs.\"
