On average, a Sea Turtle will lay between 100-200 eggs. Only about 10% survive either because they are unable to get out of their shell or predators eat them either while they are still in the egg or shortly after they hatch. Often times, the mother will go to the same place to lay her eggs.
Female sea turtles lay their eggs in nests on shore. Depending in the species, they can lay anywhere from 50 to 200 egg. They have so many as a preemptive defense mechanism, because their eggs are sought after food by both humans and animals. Sometimes, an entire nest of eggs will be destroyed this way.
