The first baby turtle to pip its egg in Zoo Med’s incubation room this year was a Pink Belly Sideneck Turtle. Our prolific pair of Pink Bellies laid their first clutch of the season in mid-February and the three eggs hatched at the end of March. These beautiful turtles will keep the brilliant pink color on their bellies throughout their lifetime.
