  • Do Turtles Mate For Life

  • turtles do not mate for life as a general rule. they mate when ever they happen across each other. Some species of turtles can retain fertilized eggs within themselves for up to 3 years awaiting the proper conditions for egg laying.

    that being said, in captivity some females have been known to develop a “liking” for a certain male and to avoid other males in preference. But thats far from a “mate for life ” situation.
