    Surprise visitor

    Went out into my backyard to water raspberries, and guess what I found?
    Box turtles are quite possibly endangered here in CO, so this is not a common sight. I hope he sticks around for a while.






    It's a love turtle! JK

    We think this guy might be one of two my dad rescued from a highway a few years back. There's a pretty good chance we're right, too, as there's never any sightings of these guys anywhere near my house.

    Your he is she. The irises of a male's eyes are red/orange.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Yeah, tried. They don't really eat much when the only thing they see is my heeler sticking her nose right into their face, though...... yes, I also know they like to eat other things more, but, hey, what I had was what I had, and can't blame the little sister I have for trying to keep the tortoise around with treats...... by the way, SubRosa, we used to have a male and female box turtle at my school, but neither had red irises.... you sure you're thinking about the right species?
