I am concerned as I haven't been able to get it to eat yet. Do you think this is an older turtle. Maybe I am not doing something right. There is a difference between caring for a hatchling and an adult. My adopted adult box turtle is thriving, even now that she has come in the house.

Is there any other tempting foods I can try? The little one stays hid all the time. It is curious and attentive though when I soak it so it doens't appear to be ill. It just runs like hell and buries itself in my presence. Do I take the chance of not even soaking it and just leave it completely alone? I am afraid it would not come out if I didn't make it.

Please advise
