Experience the Wildlife on the shores of Craigmuir Lake.

Observe the #turtles laying their #eggs in high, #sandy, open spaces during #latespring and #earlysummer.

You may observe female digging test holes with her hind feet prior to depositing her eggs. #Turtlesburytheireggs. An indication of #nests could include disturbed sand or #vegetation.

Since survival of the eggs depends upon #concealment, the best way to find a nest is through witnessing the actual #egglayingprocess. Most turtles leave the nesting area afterward and do not return.

Not all turtles nest close to their home waters. #Freshwaterturtles can travel miles to find a sandy site located near a #smallstream, to lay their eggs.
