Hi, I'm new, but not really new to turtles. I've had a bunch of different reptiles and amphibians in my lifetime, and used to do wildlife rehab so I've cared for a bunch of animals. Currently, I have 3 box turtles, an older rescue that I have had 5 years but have no clue how old he really is, and 2 juveniles I got as babies that are closer to 2 years old. These are the only reptiles I have at the moment, but I've had geckos, a blue tongue skink, a bearded dragon, a ring neck snake, an emerald green iguana, and a bunch of different frogs and toads.

I also have some invertebrates, 2 jumping spiders, a Chinese mantis, and a panther mantis. I'm hoping to be able to breed the jumping spiders in the future mainly so I can keep them as pets continuously and give a few to friends. They are just so adorable!

Here's a video of my oldest box turtle, Herman. I like to crochet little shell outfits for him when he's out in the yard so I can see him more easily. He loves it!

I too am quite fond of the cute little jumping spiders. They're adorable!

Oh, that's pretty cool! There was a reptile expo at the raceway on Saturday, but only a couple tortoises.
