We have a red eared slider turtle. We have had him for like 2 years. lasy night we see something coming out of him. I don\'t know how to explain this, but it was black, looked gooey, and was huge, like 2X as big as his head. Anybody know what this was? As soon as he saw us he sucked it back in him.
we looked this morning and it wasn\'t in the tank, but we did find something that looked like an egg, but it was very tiny. Not even as wide as my thumb. Do turtles need a mate to breed? and if anyone has any idea about what this could have been please let me know.
Thank You

i answered in a miserable way last time but now i know that if he was able to get it back by himself then it must be ok and he\'s just sexually mature..oh yeah obviuosly u got a guy in there:)

and since males don\'t lay eggs, then if u have another turtle she might be the one..although i don\'t really think it is an egg

anyways good luck and keep us posted:)
