Box Turtles Mating...These guys were so attached for 6 hrs! we tried to separate them after 4 hrs but no way could they come apart! This was a real education for us;) We have had them both since June and never have we seen this! Lilly got hungry during the process...

perhaps we shall have some babies some day?

to explain this further
Angel (boy), he is on the right hand side, we were almost afraid he was dead as his eyes were wide and did not move, he does blink quite a bit normally! anyway Lilly(girl) is right side up she is lying on her belly so to speak and her head you can see extended...

Wow, I know nothing about turtles. 6 hrs, huh? I had no idea.

Holy smacks....that must of been some cigarette smoke after 6 hours! Good luck with the babies.

Oh my..how did the kids react to this?

Love it, but it looks backwards to me!!!! We have large tortoises and the mating sessions are quite noisy and seemingly cruel. We do get eggs (and babies) each year and that is really fun. How old are they? Good luck.
