Love your blog idea! I'm considering an expansion over the summer (a very slow one due to the Texas heat) and now I want a big rather badly.

Here are some pics from the latest update to our Eastern Box Turtle pen. The latest adventure was to connect the existing garden pen with another garden area that was recently fenced in via a "tunnel" that runs under the path between them. The point was to give them some extra space and give the females more of a retreat with the male was persistent. The "tunnel" is about 1.5' wide with about 8" of clearance allowing our boxies to pass easily from one pen to the other. The second pen also contains a planted frog bog and the area will be updated with some permanent hides as well in the next fews weeks. 20180624_150125.jpeg20180624_122108.jpeg20180625_164901.jpeg20180625_164913.jpeg20180625_165100.jpeg20180625_165147.jpeg20180625_165013.jpeg20180625_164802.jpeg20180625_115230.jpeg20180624_151221.jpeg

I love the tunnel and your board on board fence. It's a really great look in your garden.

Great looking enclosure, and nice job on the tunnel and bog and plants.... About how many turtles do you have in there now?

There are five Eastern Box Turtles, four females and a male, all adopted from the kind folks of the Mid Atlantic Turtle and Tortoise Society.
