During my visit in Vancouver, I witnessed something amazing; I followed a Red-eared slider turtle from the Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park, she walked a bit further into the park and started digging a hole. It took ~3 hours, and then she laid 11 eggs! Each one was the size of a quail egg, but they all fit in the hole. Afterwards she covered it up with dirt and grass, removing all traces of the nest. All in all, it took ~4 hours and afterwards she was quite exhausted. Here’s a picture of her walking back to the lagoon:
