    Out & About

    neat, she is beautiful. We live on 17 acres fields and woods and my husband came across a pair of boxies breeding. We have come across adults and one to two year olds on the farm but this is the first time he/we came across a breeding pair. It is so late in the season we think these eggs will...

    Box turtles are native to Texas and Oklahoma, I have been to both places and found them. Found a bunch of three toads on a ranch in Oklahoma, a few in Northeastern Texas(not three toads)

    Cuora Serrata

    My experience with two very special three toed box turtle eggs

    How great for those babies. Without you saving them they probably would have gotten smooshed too.

    Egg like discharge

    So so sorry for the loss of your little mate. To have one so long and lose it is hard. It does not seem like it is anything you did. I know you will miss her. Best wishes while you recuperate.

    How to sell or donate a tortoise

    I don't know. I have only recently seen two Russian tortoises for sale at a PetCo besides that in all my 30 years living here I have never seen tortoises of any size for sale at any stores.

    so sorry about your loss. Something similar happened to me when I was young and had some Box turtles outside under a tree. The shade moved and they got over heated. It is hard, but like said, you have learned a valuable lesson and can go on from here.

    Soft shell and leaking (horse field tortoise)

    So sorry for the loss, the tortoise does indeed look like she is dead to me.

    HEY YOU...

    Maggie, your new additions look like they already have personalities. I used to visit my husband's parent's lake and go out in the canoe with a net. I would catch soft shells by the dozens. One at a time I would size them and touch them and then let them go. It was fun. Have fun with your new...
