    Box turtles come home after one year

    Last Spring a devastating thing happened to me and my family of turtles. I went down to see my turtles, and since they just came up from hibernation, wanted to make sure everyone was OK. The turtle garden was a mess, plants stepped on and crushed, and the little pond was muddy. Since none of...

    If this isn't the right place to post this, just delete it. It doesn't matter......just felt the need to ramble on..... Every now and then I wake up and want to live again. Then, sometimes the sleepless nights come and I can't breathe. Does it ever end? It's just a part of who I am now, but...

    Turtle garden, last pictures of the Summer

    The nights are cool now, in the low 60's so the turtles aren't eating as much. Tomorrow I'll go find some leaf litter in the wood to set up the hibernation cave. The only flowers that haven't bloomed are the mums...probably next week so I'll take more pictures then. This is the only frog that...

    after rain in the turtle garden this AM

    It's been raining here for two days and finally some sun, so I thought I'd take some pictures as most of the turtles were out. Some of the flowers are starting to come up.

    Turtles and Tortoise gardens

    I don't seem to get on here much lately, but here are some recent pictures of the turtles and Solo. The flowers haven't come up yet, so it's not as pretty as it will be in the mid Summer. Here's Solo, so happy to be outside again. (don't remember if I posted these or not...sorry if I did.)...

    very sad....Pio gone now

    This is a very sad thread for me. I can't come on here much because my husband is very sick and takes up a lot of my time. Winter is coming and it's almost time for me to bring in Solo and Pio. Solo is still young and really doesn't seem to care if he is inside or outside, as long as he gets...

    Pio and Solo

    This is the first Summer that Pio and Solo are together outside in the Tortoise garden. I moved the front of the hide because I couldn't find them, and wanted to see what they were doing. Pio is very sweet and placid, and Solo is more aggressive, especially when there is food around...

    Baby Snapping turtles hatching now

    There is a pond where I live and this Spring, a big mama Snapping turtle came out of the pond and laid her eggs in the yard. We put them in a tub, and now they started to hatch. Only two so far have hatched, and there are 6 eggs, so hopefully the other 4 will be hatching soon. After the yolk...

    Out in the Garden today

    Today's food....venison, sweet potato's and strawberries. A favorite treat for everyone. If Pio was a cat or dog, she'd be licking the plate, but she eats every drop. Solo finished hers too. The turtles love it too, although most of them didn't come out today...

    The turtle garden today

    Today was so warm, so everyone was up. Chewy went for a swim, trying to catch a goldfish. It was very comical to watch her underwater wating for one to pass by. Who said box turtles can't swim! I didn't catch any! Some ground venison for Chewy, since she didn't catch any fish...
