If you follow the advice offered by knowledgeable long-time box turtle keepers, there is no reason why you cannot begin to keep your turtle in better conditions. If you can make the changes that are necessary to keep him healhty then you are learning the same things we all had to learn. No one was born an expert keeper

Please buy my book (Box Turtles by Tess Cook), or read my online box turtle care book for free (www.boxturtlesite.org/bxbook.html)and it will help you to learn what you are doing right and how you can correct things you may be doing wrong.

If you decide to give the turtle up-don't feel bad for long-you are actually being a responsible pet owner and I think you are being very kind. You can always get another turtle in the future when you have more resources.

I like MATTS as well. But depending on where you live, there might be something closer.
