Incubation time for sea turtles ranges between 45 and 70 days. Interestingly, nest temperature accounts a lot for the sexes of the hatchlings; lower temperatures produce more males, and higher temperatures produce more females. Sea turtles can hatch anytime during the year, but hatchings mostly occur in the summer. Once a baby turtle has hatched, it may take 3 to 7 days for it to reach the surface (the nests are buried), and it generally leaves the nest at nighttime to avoid predators, heading for the ocean.
Eggs gestate for 7-10 weeks inside the female turtle, and once laid, have an incubation period of about 60 days.
