New Boxie Eggs!

Baby Girl (Eastern Box turtle) laid 3 eggs today. Kinda off season, I know, but I've been expecting them. I'm incubating them ... so we'll se what happens.

Thanks for the support everyone! I'll see about the pics as soon as I get the new digi cam on Mon.


Corina, if it is an adult then you can usually tell the sex by the shape of the bottom of the shell -- it is concave if it is a male and pretty much flat if it is a female. Males often have red eyes .. but that isn't always the case.
