Why did my yellow belly turtle eat her baby eggs?
When my yellow belly turtle became pregnant,I was told to put turtle sand in a cat box with a bit of water for her to lay her eggs,I filled up when it was needed but when we were out all day we came back and she laid her eggs in the bottom of the tank and then just ate them the next day. After three weeks or so,we found another egg but just laying on the basking ledge. So we picked it up gently with a dish and berried it in the sand and thought it was going well as my turtle was very protective over the box but now I'm so shocked and confused that my turtle just dug up her egg and ate the shell and all!! Someone please shed some light on this as I'm very shocked, confused and quite upset to be honest!
