    New EBT Owner looking for advice!!

    Hi all! I adopted a male EBT about three months ago. He is estimated to be about 40-50 years old. He’s doing alright, but i can tell he’s very shy. He always retreats when I clean his water or even put food in his enclosure. He never goes for his food right away and sometimes won’t even eat...

    Hi All, We've had our eastern box for a few years now, took her in from a friend where she was the sole turtle, but their new puppy kept harassing her. We noticed last year the occasional bit of blood on her face, thought it was from dry skin or opening wide when feeding. This year it's much...
