Some of you may remember when this little box turtle hatched in Sept 2011 weighing less than 4 grams. Tinybox Sept 2011 I kept him inside and awake the first winter, but has lived outside pretty much and on it's own since. I supply the food, water and make sure the living quarters have enough moisture, but very little interaction with humans. Tiny 7 2015 2 Unless I go looking for them (the youngsters) I very seldom see them.Seems to be growing at a normal rate for a wild turtle .

He's a cutie! I have a three toed/gulf coast integrade boxie that is turning 4 in August. So she hatched in August of 2011. She is huge though. She took after the gulf coast in size, plus she has been kept warm and awake every winter indoors.

I'm taking the same approach with mine ;). They just got moved outside this spring.
