    I don't have this one anymore. He was getting too big for me to safely handle:

    I don't have pics but Buzz let's me know when I need to come out and visit him by rearranging the patio furniture. 90% of the time he walks around it and it stays put. But when he is in that mood... my table ended up all the way across the yard and the chairs were all over the back patio. I have thought about getting him a brightly colored ball to see if he would play with this.

    I sold him to Toucan Jungle. Bo and So weighed a little over 250lbs when they were sold.

    In the first group of pictures he broke into the gulf coast box turtle yard and after seeing the grass wasn't greener, he came back out.

    The worst times, far as the fences were concerned, were when there were people on the outside of the fence. He was very people/food oriented and always tried to get to the people.

    Oh my...250 lbs!
    I can only imagine being outside the fence, hearing wood crack, and seeing that barreling toward me! I'll bet he was a sweetie!
