Snapping Turtle Hatching
My name is Kaden, my dad and I saw a snapping turtle laying eggs and we
wanted to know how long it takes for the eggs to hatch?
Hatching of turtle and most other reptile eggs is very dependent on temperature.
Snapping turtle eggs usually hatch in from two to four months. An interesting fact
is that whether the young are male or female depends on the temperature in the nest
at critical times during development.
