Welcome home, Deirdre!
I drove down to Danbury, CT, to pick up this rescue tort, a hingeback, this morning.
She weighs 1477g and is 19.0 cm in length.
She's got some shell fungus and a pretty funky shell, both likely from sub-standard conditions in her previous life.
While giving her a bath and inspection and rubdown with athlete's foot cream (for the fungus), she laid two eggs, which settled the debate as to her sex.
I put her in her new home with a big handful of fresh dandelion flowers... we'll figure out other foods tomorrow.
