Did you know you can breed turtles in Minecraft now? Yes, you can do that and it is seriously one of the coolest things you can do in the game. This guide is going to take you step-by-step through the whole process of breeding turtles in Minecraft. From finding adult turtles to creating eggs, we will discuss everything.

How to Breed Turtles in Minecraft

There are several steps involved in breeding turtles in the game and they are quite similar to other breeding you can do. For example, just like in horse breeding, you’ll need a special ingredient to initiate the process.

Find Turtles

In order to breed turtles in Minecraft, you’ll need to find 2 adult ones. They usually spawn in the Overworld on beaches. However, they do not spawn on stone shores or cold weather. You can easily find them in groups, some may even have babies already with them.

Getting Turtles Together

There are several factors you need to consider before you can actually breed and get an egg from the turtles. First, you need to have 2 turtles together in close proximity. Make sure both the turtles are on a sandy surface and close to each other. Then simply feed them seagrass. Seagrass is essential in starting the breeding process. You’ll need to feed both of them seagrass in order to start the breeding.

If you’re successful, you’ll see tiny hearts over the heads of the turtles and they will start to move closer to each other. Once they’re close enough, they’ll start the turtle dance and after a little time, you’ll see experience bubble pop up on their heads. After that, they’ll simply start digging around in the sand and a few moments later a turtle egg will simply spawn.

One important thing to note is that the turtles only breed on the beach you found them. That’s their home beach and they will only lay eggs there.

Hatch the Eggs

Hatching turtle eggs in Minecraft can take a little while so don’t be discouraged. Another important thing to note is that they only hatch at night. The eggs also have a tendency to attract evil zombies so make sure you have ample protection around the eggs.

The Baby Turtles

Once the eggs have hatched and you have baby Turtles you can actually increase their growth by feeding them seagrass. If you have 10 seagrasses on hand, then you can easily make a baby turtle into an adult one. When a baby turtle turns into an adult, it will drop one scute.

Making the Turtle Helmet

If you want the awesome turtle shell helmet that gives you an extra 10 seconds of breath underwater, you need to have 5 scutes. You can do that by hatching and growing 5 baby turtles into adults. It’s a cool way to explore and highly recommended if you love going underwater.


Breeding turtles in Minecraft is a fairly easy process and you can do it with a bit of practice. The only hard part is finding the turtles and making sure the eggs don’t get stomped by the evil zombies.
