    I could deal with some box turtles, even some painted. Its just gonna be fun if they turn out to be alligator snapping turtles.. Those puppies bite, and bite hard even the size of a quarter can break some skin...LOL

    Wow Steve if Dan is right that would be cool to have baby box turtles hatch.. We hardly if ever see any here as they seem to be very few left in Mich.. thats why they are on the endangerd species list.. I rember when i was 10 i found one in the field next to our house as back then it was all swamps and dirt roads and very few houses..was a male and had beautiful red eyes..

    Hey Cuda,

    Yeah turing was what I was worried about. The only possible is if they were not turned too far or if they were new eggs. The turning damage normally takes place after the body structure takes effect.. Turtles as I understand it, they develop inside the yolk like chickens do, not like snakes which develop around and outside of the yolk.. I am not expecting much with these eggs, just incase any were OK, figured I would give them a chance.. Guess I will know in a few months.. In another month I should be able to light them and see if anything is developing...

    :-\ Not to sure on what type eggs they are steve, but my guess is if the eggs was rolled or moved around alot then they wont be good as turtle eggs should always stay in one position when layed.. The ones with the flunky color to them and dents dont look good.. But what the heck give it a try and see what happens. Maybe youl come out with a bunch of snappers... LOL!!!!!
    Lots luck on the eggs bud...

    started a topic What Kind

    What Kind

    Hey all,

    Today was a long day full of headaches.. I will give the short version..

    I got a call today that some turtle eggs were found on Sunday. They came in with a sand delvery. Seems the well meaning folks picked the eggs up and one person took a few and the other took the rest. One person kept the eggs in a plant pot with grass, the other person kept the eggs in the sand in a bucket.. The one with the sand was hot, and the one with the grass was cool.. So I am not even sure any of these eggs will make it. There were 40 eggs total. They are now in my incubator on vermiculite. So I guess I will know in about three months.. I am no turtle expert, and everyone I have dealt with was already hatched, so this should be interesting.. I think I drove about 3 hours total picking the eggs up.. Not to mention the hour on the phone with the local wildlife department, and let me tell you, I was so PO by the time I got off the phone. Never heard so many stupid laws, not to mention questions they couldn't answer.. The whole process needs to be revamped, and soon..

    Anyway, does anyone know what kind of turtle eggs these are.. We have two common types of turtles (alligator snappers and Painted turtles) plus a few endangered types.. Anyone have any idea?
