    The amount of eggs a turtle lays varies depending on specie and there are over 250 species of turtles. For example, an African pancake tortoise lays only one egg per clutch (group), while a sea turtle is capable of laying 200 eggs at a time. A green turtle may lay up to seven clutches of eggs in one breeding season. There are only two species of alligator, the American and the Chinese. Both these species have similar characteristics and are capable of laying 20-60 eggs at one time depending on their size.
