How should I take care of box turtle eggs?


Answer by  susan27 (24)

If possible, let them incubate where the mother laid them. If not, avoid rotating them, bury them halfway in a tub of moist vermiculite or sphagnum moss and keep them at about 78-82 degrees. Do not rotate them or let them dry out. If the tops appear dry, mist them lightly. Eggs take 75-90 days to hatch.

I would first put a towel on the bottom of the box so that it doesn't get too dirty. I would bring the mother turtle to take care.

They will only survive in a cold temperature. Put them in the fridge and make sure the temperature is very high on cold. Otherwise, put them in the freezer and it should be okay.

These eggs should be underground so if you find them you should take them somewhere safe and burry them in dirt.
