They tend to congregate in basking areas, usually on exposed rocks or logs caught along the shoreline. Thanks for your time and I apologize if this has been answered thru another thread. In the past she would show the usual signs flailing about, not eating, digging motions with front and back feet for just a few days and then would "lay" the eggs in the water of her tank. If you are raising two turtles it is best to have a male and a female. This is the one she loves to stay in. Thank you happy Camper.

We recommend searching the internet if you need information about turtle diseases. Drying her out will help with her shedding skin and a complete change of environment may help the male to back off a bit. Waiting too long or drastically traumatized organs may require amputation, but this is a very rare case. I have them separate right now but my daughter rescued the baby today at school he was about to get stepped on so she grabbed him and the school gave her a bowl to carry the baby home. The flaking is transparent but frequent.
My question is, what are some possible indoor arrangements that we could use when the time comes? The newly-born baby red-eared sliders hatchlings are approximately 1 inch in diameter. Why is he doing this, and is it normal? So if you have any information that can help me to understand the reproduction part of this, I would gladly accept it! In fact, she could mate again and use the sperm of multiple males for a single clutch. As mentioned, these reptiles need to warm up in the sun at intervals. Offer him two sticks or three pellets in a shallow bowl of water every day for 5 minutes.
