    They could be wanting to mate or it could be a greeting. Generally the male initiates.

    For a egg laying spot you would want an area of land that is warmish (75-80) has mostly coconut fiber, or peat moss that is just barely moist. It should be deep enough that if the turtle wanted too they could completely bury themselves. Having it covered on most sides will help the turtle feel more secure about laying there.
