I have an eastern box turtle in what use to be my kids' sand box. It's 6' x 8' and made out of 2"x8"s. I don't have a top on it, but I have two beagles that run every other animal up a tree or out of the yard. For water I have modified 2 paint trays with the disposable plastic liners (so I can take them out and clean them) for the turtle to walk down in and soak if it desires (a small pond is in the works for the future). The sand that's left in there is mostly covered in crab-grass. Is there anything I need to mix or cover the sand with? What do I need to do to the enclosure for hibernation, or would it be best to make them a winter home inside? Also, I'd like to know what y'all feed your EBT's. I'm currently feeding mine strawberrys, tomatoes, carrots, grapes, romaine lettuce, and the occasional banana. I feed a veggie and a fruit over some romaine every-other day with calcium powder sprinkled over it.

Any response and other advice is greatly appreciated!

Have a blessed day,
Erich
