Unusual egg-laying in a captive softshelled turtle Trionyx gangeticus Cuvier

, : Unusual egg-laying in a captive softshelled turtle Trionyx gangeticus Cuvier. Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society 82.3: 674-675

Turtles have a remarkable ability to survive under very circumscribed captive conditions but then their normal behaviour is altered. While conducting a study on the reproductive physiology of the fresh-water turtle Trionyx gangeticus , a turtle laid 7 eggs during the first week of October, 2 eggs on November 5 and 3 eggs on December 22, when on dissection three more eggs were found intact in the left oviduct.
