It is really hard to tell just by how she looks. If you really focus, you can notice the back of her shell is wider then usual. The best way to really know is after she has mated, she will spend alot of time basking and being inactive. She also will eat less then usual, but make sure you encorage her to eat. Using treats like live earth worms and feeder fish helps. She'll also wants to be alone so it is very important you separate the male away from her until she lays the eggs. You should only touch her when you have to. You also need to keep the water very clean and warm. Make 5 inches of soil in the tank's land area so she can lay the eggs. She'll be doing alot of digging and sniffing in the last 2 weeks before she lays the eggs. She'll hold them for about 80 days. She can lay from 2 to 25 eggs!

After mating, it takes approximately 2 months for the eggs to be laid, and then another 2 months for the eggs to hatch.

It won't harm the turtle - but the eggs should be removed from the water as soon as possible.

Not many usually. the most they usually lay is about 5 or 6.

Yes, they will happily eat the eggs wether it was theirs or not.If you are breeding them it is best to leave the female with her eggs and put the male in a different enclosure.

You won't actually see a difference in your RES prior to her laying eggs. Her appearance will remain unchanged.

Without access to a laboratory for artificial insemination, eggs must be fertilized by a male turtle. Once the eggs are laid by the female, they can't be fertilized.

turtles usually lay about 24 to 32 eggs Yeah but they're asking a specific turtle so wouldn't the number change do you think?

Yes, like all other turtles Red Eared Slider Turtles lay eggs. There is no species of turtle that gives birth to live young.

Yes a pet slider turtle can begin to lay eggs at the age of four when she reaches maturity. If she does not have a place where she can bury her eggs she will old them inside of her until she can't anymore. She will then just drop them in the water in her tank.

Take them out ASAP!!! they are good for 2 hours...what happens after 2 hours is that the egg loses oxygen.
