    I need advice please!

    Recently I cleared out a creek with a beaver dam. The creek rapidly drained to its normal size, unfortunately killing many fish and other creatures. I found a box turtle, not sure what kind stuck in the mud. It’s only about the size of a rubber bouncy ball. I washed it off with bottled water and...

Here in CO it's beginning of winter, and as soon as it got cold she burrowed to the bottom of her substrate (soil and...

    Mistreated box turtle

    I adopted a baby box turtle approximately 7 years ago and when I say "adopted", I mean plucked from her natural habitat without any consideration for her. I realize just how ignorant a mistake that was and have rivers of guilt for it. I did not do enough research on how to properly care for my...
