Hello people, Im from south Louisiana and I owned box turtles from about 7 years old until I was about 20, That's when someone stole my whole collection..I had Eastern,Gulf Coast,Three Toed and a few that were crossed bred so I wasn't sure what they were exactly....But I've moved since then and im starting over..I just received my first baby Eastern box turtle (CB) a couple days ago and cant wait to see how he turns out,, I'll post pics of my out door set up for some three toes I have coming as soon as I take some pics and figure out how to post.lol...

Welcome to the Forum, HAWK!

I have box turtles too. They are very personable and a lot of fun to keep. Yesterday I found 6 hatchling gulf coast box turtles, and today I found another one.

I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Welcome! I'm sorry to hear about your animals. What a terrible thing! Hope you've moved to a safer place. Looking forward to seeing lots of baby box turtle pictures. ;)

Welcome. Looking forward to seeing photos of your outdoor pens. I may know someone who may be possibly looking to adopt out a high orange male EBT. Living in Louisiana with outdoor space You sound like a good candidate.

Oh you have plenty of space:). Skip the mulch in next pen. Grass, loose soil and some leaf litter is more natural bedding. I see a perfect space for next pen by the fence in the deep grass. Its already half done. Just make sure they can't dig under that fence. Anyway... here is the boxie for adaption in his pen. He is an LTC, originally from South Carolina so he should thrive in warmer/humid climate. Pm me if you like him. I do want to make sure he goes into right home with good space enclosure.
