Question: How many babies can a turtle have at a time?

Keywords: ,

  1. Another good question Owls

    All turtles lay eggs

    The number of eggs they lay actually varies quite a lot across all the different species. In general the smaller freshwater turtles will lay between 1 and 5 clutches of around 10 eggs per breeding season, and they may breed every year, but some only breed once every 2 or 3 years.

    The sea turtles also have different patterns
    Green turtles – 6 clutches of 115 eggs every 4-6 years
    Loggerhead turtles 4 clucthes of 120 eggs every 3-5 years
    Leatherback turtles – up to 10 clutches of 100 eggs every 3-5 years
    Olive ridley & Kemps ridley 2-3 clutches of ~90 eggs every 2 years
    Hawksbill turtles 4 clutches of 120 eggs ever 3-5 years
    Flatback turtles 3 clutches of 50 eggs every 1 to 2 years

    I hope that helps
