If eggs are incubated at 26.6C, all eggs will be male. In contrast, if a clutch is incubated at 31C, all eggs will be female. Administering certain PCBs to eggs incubated at all-male or male-biased temperatures produces more females than expected on the basis of temperature alone. During the last two weeks you will notice that she will spend more time on land, sniffing and digging around in order to find a proper place for laying her eggs. If the eggs are left, you eliminate the risk of damaging the eggs. Keepers who have a good basking area prefer to leave the eggs where they were laid, a good point of doing so is that they do not need to handle the eggs, digging them out could damage the eggs or some of them. This is important since you need to place the eggs in the same position the turtle layed them. Check the eggs a few days after by just removing the lid, but don’t handle them! Check for rotten eggs, which you should throw away immediately. Hatching time is coming! The eggs should hatch in about 80-85 days. Once the time comes, the hatching will cut the eggs shell with something called “egg tooth”, which falls out about an hour later and never grows back. Red Eared Sliders will lay several clutches of 4-25 eggs per breeding season. Depending on several factors, including the age and size of the Turtle and the feeding and maintenance schedules, egg clutches will be laid at intervals of 2-4 weeks. The container is kept sealed except for a few holes for aeration and the eggs are then incubated at 80-82 degrees F. The eggs should be regularly inspected, and the vermiculture lightly sprayed with water to retain moisture. Eggs incubated at 75 degrees F, will yield primarily males and eggs incubated at 85 degrees F, will yield mostly females.

The Turtle lady has quite a few turtles needing homes before any more turtles are able to come into the rescue. Before heading to a pet shop think adoption firs…t. Aquariums can be expensive, however plastic storage bins, and stock tanks make perfect enclosures for your semi- aquatic friends. Illinois law states that you cannot own more than 8 native species or herps and no more than 4 of the same species. Illinois law also states that it is illegal to propagate any native herps.

Turtle Adoption & Turtle Rescue

The parents give in and buy their children this new pet. Hoping that their children will learn responsibility. The children are ‘slacking off’ in their responsibilities. This goes on for awhile but now you are tired of taking care of this little pet. This is a very common theme among a lot of pet owners. It’s not as easy to give away a turtle as it is a dog or cat. Below are some links to sites that offer turtle adoptions. Read them carefully as not all sites accept red ear sliders. I have just gathered up sites that offer turtle adoption. Do the research and ask them of any questions you may have.

Reporting Stranded, Entangled, or Injured Sea Turtles

A stranded sea turtle is defined as any ocean turtle found dead, injured, sick, tumored, or otherwise abnormal and sometimes even normal in appearance and out of the water, usually along the shoreline. The turtle may also be in very shallow water close to shore. Sea turtles are listed and protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and wildlife laws of the State of Hawaii. All sea turtles, both dead and alive, are legally protected. These instructions apply exclusively to sea turtles. Due to the considerable travel distances that may be involved, and the possibility of other turtle strandings occurring at the same time, a delay in response of three hours or more may occur. There is no harm whatsoever for a sea turtle to be out of the water for many hours, provided it is not in direct hot sunlight. Sea turtles strand because they want to and need to be out of the ocean. Callers should be prepared to tell exactly where the turtle is located, whether it appears to be dead or alive, and the size of the animal. If the turtle returns to the water before someone arrives, this is not necessarily bad. Some turtles, even ones with tumors, want to rest ashore for a period of time and they may do this regularly. The size and degree of decomposition of a dead stranded turtle could make it impossible or inappropriate to load and transport the turtle to the laboratory for scientific research. DLNR-DOCARE Officers do not normally pick up stranded turtles, unless there is a law enforcement violation.

Crystal Beach Local News, Get the latest Scoop on Bolivar Peninsula, Texas, Resort community on the Gulf of Mexico

The turtle had stranded on one of the more remote parts of the peninsula, near High Island. Staff member RD Stewart immediately called the sea turtle hotline which connected him to our NOAA Sea turtle Facility. He initially thought the turtle was deceased since it was unresponsive but, under my direction, he examined the turtle closer and it was still alive. I did not think the turtle would even survive the trip back to our hospital since it was in such poor nutritional shape. The turtle was on fluids every day for the first week it was in our care, and was on antibiotics for 30 days. The turtle finally ate seafood after it had been in the hospital for 7 days. After 6 weeks in our care, the turtle had made a miraculous recovery and was cleared for release by our veterinarian. I invited RD Stewart to participate in the release of the turtle he saved from dying. The turtle was released on 6-19-2017 on the Bolivar peninsula. Galveston County Road & Bridge workers, in particular RD Stewart, have gone above and beyond to assist in saving sea turtles on the Bolivar peninsula. They are always willing to help in sea turtle conservation however they can, including placing sea turtle educational signage on the peninsula, finding nesting Kemp’s ridleys on the beach and protecting them, and rescuing stranded sick/injured sea turtles. I am so appreciative of these workers; RD has been a great asset and I want the community to know what they have done for our sea turtles on the upper Texas coast.
