Spotted turtle nesting attempt

Post by kirkie » Fri Aug 23, 2013 10:56 pm

I arrived home to this tonight. My first ever nesting attempt by a spotted turtle.


She stopped after a while and half heartedly covered her tracks. When I excavated the spot there was a sizeable plant root below which may have put her off.

I'm after a little advice. My instinct is to leave her outdoors where this attempt was made. However the weather isn't looking too promising. Is it worth bringing her in an setting up a nice tub with a nest site? 

I have a couple of females who are extremely heavy at the moment.
