European Pond Turtle Health Information

Breeding
European Pond Turtles usually mate after hibernation in May, although they may breed as early as March and as late as April. The female lays a clutch of between three and sixteen eggs. The clutches are usually larger in the wild. The eggs, which are laid in holes dug in the ground, hatch between August and September.

Male European Pond Turtles are smaller and have thicker tails then the females. Males are sexually mature between the ages of 12 and 13, while the female is not mature until she is about 15.
