Back around June 16th, this year, I posted a picture of a female boxie that was hit by a car I found. Other than a few cracks around her hinge and some shell flaking on the underneath side, her injuries appeared to be internal as she was spitting up blood. I soaked her in some antiseptic that a vet recommended and hoped for the best. Well the best came, it was slow as she finally came around to eating, worms, berries, bananas, and corn on the cob. Iíve soaked her every few days and kept a close eye on her.

The night before last I found an egg in the garden, not buried but laying on the ground under a cabbage leaf. The egg was flat on the bottom and collapsed later in the evening. Just 1 egg. Two nights later she laid another egg in the house where she has a pen. That egg looks like she stepped on it.

My question is was she egg bound? As she was found/injured the first week of June about egg laying time here in NE Ohio. The last egg was about 2 days ago, is there a chance she still has more inside? Otherwise she appears to be doing all right. Iím debating whether to let my males mate with her late September or October.

Need help from experienced Turtle Owners.

Named her Taylor, photo enclosed, and will keep her along with my 2 Males who are kept in separate parts of the garden for now

Thanks Alan
