That's a young box turtle that has been kept in the house with no UVB or calcium. His long curly toe nails and mis-shapen shell tell us he's suffering from MBD, and his overgrown beak tells us he's been fed soft foods, probably cat food, his whole life. I'll bet he has a very short, mis-shapen tail too.

Can you give us the story behind this turtle?
