Turtles are some of the many reptiles that lay eggs. Not all reptiles do, but turtles can lay anywhere from 50 to 200 eggs.
If you’ve ever seen turtles hatch from their eggs, then you know that they’re pretty tiny when they first poke out.
Most often, you can see their small bodies trying to waddle out of their shell, but they can’t get out right away.
However, once they’ve finally broken free of their egg, they are on the move and fast. Their mom is not there when they hatch.
A mama lays her eggs in a sandy ditch she has dug with her flippers, then leaves her babies and waits for them to come to her.
We’ve seen many videos of turtle babies making their way to the ocean, but have you ever seen a turtle egg hatch?
Turtle expert Pete Jansema shared the beautiful natural process of hatching in a video with his fans online and it is truly something incredible to watch.
