Nice Boxies.
I found this male trying to get into my Redfoot pen a few months back.
I don't even know how he made it into my yard!
Maybe someone who knows about your tortoises thought you needed another (my next door neighbor has been known to toss water turtles into my pond).

Stunning. My goal next year is to get some spotted turtles. I know it would be a challenge to find cb wood turtles and Blanding.
if i thought i could manage another type of turtle it'd be spotted turtles ..... i've come real close to giving in on that ........

Im slowly getting every dream turtle I want when I'm able and equipped. This year I got diamond back terrapin. Next year hermanns and spotted are my main goal. Go for it man, we only get one life.
