They start producing at the age of 3-4yrs old, and yes they are exactly the same terrapin as what u normally see in LFS.

Pls do not call me a master, i started this hobby only few years back.
Just enjoy breeding fishes and Res

Does enviroment affect breeding? See many keeping those normal terrapin for years but nvr heard ppl say their terrapin lay egg.. Possible to breed at home if keep in a tank? Do i need to decorate the tank to fit their habitat?

Yes possible to breed them at home, most important is you need to have a proper setup. A basking area & nesting area with sands or soil is a must.
Also sufficient food and calcium supplement.

And once they are used to it, they will start laying multiple clutches of eggs every year.

Thumbs up

Those are beautiful !!
Can I ask when you have a pair of breeding albinos like this, are the hatchlings 100% albino or only a certain proportion? ie some look like normal, some caramel then some albino?
