I heard that turtles usually breed arouns cold season like winter around the months of January and Febuary. It\'s January. Well anyways, my male turle igby used to lay on my female turtle a lot and now stopped in this month and a few days before. I heard that in mating season they dont eat and my turtle isnt eating. I tried fish but my turle is too slow to catch them and only catches dead ones. I gave her dome fishabout 2 months ago to try something new, but she didnt eat, then food sticks, not a bite. Whats wrong w/ her?:(

The eggs can\'t be under water, they need air to breath just like the turtles do, if you find eggs in the water the next morning, odds are the eggs are already dead, the pan idea is good but it has to be out of the water.
