Pig nose turtles are one of my favourite turtles! They are like a whole bunch of species mixed together to form one exotic turtle. If I have the money, I would definitely buy one. I saw one at a pet store but it had bad water quality, was being fed iceberg lettuce, and had white specks on it's shell. I am angry at that pet store and I'm going to contact the humane society to shut it down, because I don't want to see another creature die or get neglected.

    Tony, My name is Dave. I live in Tampa Florida. I wonder if you know the incubation of the pig nose turtle eggs. I have a fresh water lake outside my condo and we have some of these turtles. One morning, May 3, 2010 to be exact, a female was laying her eggs about 10 yards from the water edge. She was dispensing them in a hole she had dug about 6 inches deep. then she covered them up. It's now July 10th and there is no evidence that they have hatched and dug themselves out.

    How long is the incubation and can they get out of that hole they were buried in?
    Thanks. Write me at Guywthclss@yahoo.com if you get this.

    Put the eggs in the water look online for incubation but can only hatch when there's water one of the very unique turtle eggs.

I need some help/advise. My pig-nose turtle has some whitish growths around his eyes and parts of his carapace. Is this just molting skin or has he acquired some disease? He has also recently just started staying at the bottom of his 50 gallon tank. Prior to these growths, he loved exploring the tank. If it is a disease/sickness, can anyone please help me by giving me some sound advice as to what I should/must do to get him better? I hope I can still do something to improve his well-being as he is a wonderful little guy who even now knows when to beg for food from me whenever I get home from work. He even loves it when I pet him on the head, much to the chagrin of my pet dog who is also addicted to attention. Thank you, in advance to whoever could help me out with my little dilemma.

    I would suggest that you go to a petsmart or another pet store and ask the fish and reptile department what to do...they would know. But do not allow the turtle to remain in that condition without treating it.

I have a female spiny soft shell turtle. She just laid 4 eggs and now there is a red balloon like sack about the size of my thumb hanging out. Is this normal or what could it be? I have been calling vets but I have not found any that have knowledge of a soft shell.

I saw two turtles with long claws that looked like the Florida box turtle. They were in a man made lake in Amarillo, Texas. Long way from Florida.

I have a red eared slider that we have had for 23yrs. This is the only turtle I have had in that time. Recently when cleaning the tank, I discovered an egg about 1 in long. This is the first time in 23 yrs this has happened-is it normal for her to lay an egg after this long?
