General Care Discussion :: Help! Is She Gravid?

Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

Post Posted: Sun Apr 09, 2017 10:37 pm   Help! Is She Gravid?

Agate is constantly skittish(She isn't usually) and digging in the corner rocks of her tank... She is swimming extremely fast into walls and when I felt between her leg and tail, I felt a bump. Is it eggs? Will she lay them?

She is my first turtle and has no mate to fertilize her eggs... She also has no nest and it is to cold outside to make one. What do I do? I want what is best for my baby...

No, you need to feel in front of the rear leg and between the shell.

Is she just foraging for something?

How many rocks are down there? Is she digging with her rear legs?
