TURTLE EGGS-NUMBER—How many eggs does a turtle lay?
A soft shell turtle 20 to 21 pounds has from 200 to 300 eggs; all sizes front a pea up to the ripe ones. She lays front 11 to 25 at a time— how often I do not know. I think a 21 pound turtle is from 12 to 15 years old, turtles feed on snails, fish and meat; they will grab a coot or duck by the tail and drown them.
In Port Royal, Ga., was a turtle farm, some eighteen or twenty years ago. Terrapins, if I am right, they were, here in Sandford fishermen get one cent a pound. They are shipped to Orlando canning factory.
