"We've had our female slider for 8 yrs and have rebuilt the outside pond twice as she's grown; she's over 10 inches now. She's laid eggs at least 4 times that we know about; only 3 hatchlings have survived, one male now 1-1/2 yrs old and two brand new ones - who were adorable with great bold personalities. Yesterday, by chance my husband saw Matilda eating one of the babies! He grabbed her but she had already bitten off the front legs and it was dying. I cannot describe how devastating this has been. We managed to get the other baby out and have it in a separate container for now. Is there an explanation for this behavior? Maybe she needs more space or we should release her somewhere where there are other sliders in a lake. First, is the surviving baby ok alone for now? The older male is still with her but nearly 6-7 inches now; I neglected to say that his mother took a small bite from his shell at an early age; he survived this and seems quite healthy. Thanks so much for any advice. "
