    Although it's not spring and we are bound to have more cold snaps, I had a bunch up this morning and some of the males were already chasing. Brace yourselves for the soon to be plethora of box turtle photos from me lol. ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1425308515.970203.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1425308527.672548.jpg

    Few more for you guys. This is my time of year! Notice my totally GIGANTIC female being mounted by a normal size male lol. She has always been my largest girl and is larger than all but one male! She doesn't discriminate against smaller males obviously ;) ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562835.668172.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562854.861789.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562867.736514.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562898.826924.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562941.727721.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562957.146730.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1426562969.567863.jpg
