Here is the box turtle I recently adopted. She seems to be doing fairly well. She is active daily now and is eating some but definately needs to eat more variety. She is eating mustard greens pretty well which is surprising as the former owner could not get her to eat anything but corn when she would eat. She also likes strawberries. Doesn't know what to do with worms although she did catch a beetle while outside the other day. I will keep trying new things and hopefully get her on a better diet. She has 3 toes so I am assuming that is what she is. I am soaking her daily and getting her outside part of the day.

I do have many years experience with aquatic turtles and iguanas but other than doing short term rescue/fostering I have not maintained one for a long period of time. I have however read everything I can get my hands on.

Does everyone agree that she is 3-toe female? How does she look?
She does seem thin to me.

Thanks and sorry for the long post
Linda
