Nesting takes place in the spring and early summer in warm temperate and subtropical areas. Females come ashore to nest at night, a process taking 1 to 2 hours. Around 112 eggs are laid in each clutch, and a female may produce up to 3 clutches in a season. The female will then not mate for the next 2 years. Hatchling loggerheads are 38-55 mm in length when they emerge.
