turtle laying eggsWell,the females tail gets fat. And the male's tail gets curled at the end. AnswerThe female will usually beach herself just a few yards from the water and dig and lay her eggs. Eventually the tide comes in and the eggs will hatch. If she lays 5 - 10 eggs only a small percentage may survive due to preditors such as birds or preditors of the ocean.

If you have a little turtle not like the big sea turtles and leather backs along with the snapping turtles you can tell if they are going to lay eggs by feeling your turtle around the carapace section near the hind legs and you will definelty feel the eggs.
