Pickle is the only female that we've ever found digging a nest.

Pickle was the first turtle in the Riverside courtyard that we found laying eggs. In the spring of 2014, on their way back from the gym, a group of second graders spotted her digging a nest with her hind legs, and she deposited three eggs into the hole she dug. At least two of those eggs hatched, so you might find some of her babies by comparing their microsatellites in the game below! Oh, and if you aren’t sure what microsatellites are, click here.

Thank you for helping!
