The article focuses on experimental method for extraction of semen in freshwater male turtles along with use of vibration on plastron and carapace to induce erection and ejaculation. Topics discussed include vibrational sperm extraction technique used in turtles, trial duration for Glyptemys insculpta (G. insculpta) and Chrysemys picta (C. picta), phalluses exposed by Emydoidea blandingii (E. blandingii) males immediately after vibrational technique and sperm extraction techniques for turtles.
