Hello,
I have 5 adult box turtles, housed outside in a 25'x5' enclosure, all thriving.
I found one alive and two dead babies last November. I brought the survivor in, and have it housed in a plastic tub with substrate and a UV light on one end.
The little one eats softened Repto-Min sticks and I have gotten it to eat one wax worm so far.
I recently noticed that the edge of it's shell has started curling up. I'm wondering if this is normal, or am I missing something with the care of this little guy.
Any help would be appreciated.
