Brief knowledge on Turtle mating

Turtle mating occurs at certain times of the year, and under certain conditions. Following are some of the most frequently asked questions about turtle mating:

Do I need a separate enclosure for my turtles when they mate?

Yes, if you either:

* More than one male per female turtle

* A number of pairs of mating turtles

An important consideration with regard to turtle breeding is that you should never allow the number of males to females surpass, because the males 'sexual demands may lead to the females' poor health. Female turtles can fight each other over a woman. For this reason, the men were wounded as they may remain in the same housing. It is therefore advisable to only a few pairs per enclosure.

When is the best time for turtle mate?

Experienced turtle owners have discovered that turtles more sexually stimulated after hibernation, which usually ends in late spring. As owner, you can support your turtles for reproduction "in the mood to get" by sprinkling their outdoor enclosure with water using a hose to the rain normally falls in the spring to simulate. The beginning of longer days and warmer temperatures, the turtles' desire to mate.

What are the common signs that turtles are ready to mate?

Beginner turtle owners may worry if they see that their turtles pushing or butting together. This is the normal behavior of male turtles for reproduction, because they are genetically programmed to fight on the female. Although this behavior is expected for the pairing, it is still your responsibility as a good turtle owner to make sure that you separate male turtles fighting for one of them seriously injured.

How do turtles mate?

It is typical for the male to the female turtle turtle charge when it comes to installation and start mating with her. The male may also sounds like moaning or hissing. The female, however, usually looks completely normal and disinterested, as if she's just relax and entertain. If the pairing process generally takes several hours, the female turtles tend to be so impatient, she wanders off to another area for something else, do all the time with the man still attached to her! Many times the attached male will then flip on his back and dragged by the female. As a novice owner may feel that the man is harmed, this is not the case. This is natural behavior for the turtles.

What should I know about my pet turtles lay eggs on?

Some beginner turtle owners may be surprised to find their newly purchased female turtles lay eggs without mating. This is due to the fact that female turtles can hold or carry sperm for a period of three or four years after mating. So, if you're an adult female turtle acquired, there is a possibility that your pet before your property is covered.

What are the common signs that my pet turtle is ready to lay eggs?

The female turtle is often restless and extended time spent soaking in water before laying her eggs. She is also nervous about tempo, and practice making nests. The actual egg-laying process takes several hours to complete.

What should I do to make sure my pet turtle lays her eggs successfully?

You can help your pet turtle by ensuring that its eggs are well protected. If a number of turtles in the area, you must remove and incubate the eggs to prevent them being damaged. (You should never turn the eggs on its head when you remove them, since this is the future hatchling to kill. Carefully mark the top of the egg with a felt pen before you move the nest, so you are sure the eggs hatch right side upwards.) You must also ensure that a turtle nesting area for the dry, so it will not have eggs in water, which can be dangerous for the eggs.

Whether your pets are only in the process of fighting for females, in the throws of the real turtle mating, or lay their eggs, it is your responsibility to supervise or watch over them for their safety and health.
