"Several years ago on a family float trip, we gained another member of the family. I refused to put my soft shell turtle back because I gave it a name. I was about 10 years old. Just this afternoon I looked into Elmo the turtles tank and saw an EGG! I was so shocked, so I started doing more research on the species seeing how hard they are to take care of in captivity. Elmo is around 11 years old, she gets fish and pellets. Her shell did curl up when she was in a smaller tank, but now that she is in a big one she seems to be happy. Just wondering if anyone knows, Since she has never did breed, will she lay the normal amount of eggs or just one every now and then?"
