I found some spiny softshelled turtle eggs, the nest had been dug up by another animal and destroyed most of the eggs.I counted 25 total and ended up with only 9 good ones and one has hatched, but the others have not. I know they will soon,(the eggs have grown in size) but i'm not sure when to release the one that has hatched-(i am not keeping any babies)just trying to give them a chance. When should I release? The baby still has the yolk sac attached and I know they live mostly in water but he is still in the incubation tank-keeping him moist though.
He is still not very active only being three days old but he can swim when i put him in some water. Any info will be helpful.
Thanks a bunch
Lauren
