I have been around turtles for almost my whole life. From the time I was little,
we have owned everything from box turtles to baby red ears to snappers. They are very interesting reptiles and
each one has a distinct personality.
My turtles are very special reptiles. I love them very much and I worry about them
when they aren't feeling well. They bring lots of joy and entertainment to my life.
My current bale of turtles includes 7 females, 6 of which are 3-toed box turtles
and 1 is an eastern box turtle. Their names are Sophie, Mable, Ivy, Heeman, Peewee, Peanut, and Jazz.
Heeman, Peewee, and Peanut are Sophie's daughters! They were born just a few days after we got Sophie. We had
no idea she was pregnant! I also recently adoped a male eastern box turtle and named him Logan. I hope that
one day he will be Jazz's boyfriend!
In the table below, I have indicated when the turtles were acquired, their ages,
and their current weights.
