Box Turtles on Vacation

Linus, Karl, and Terry share the remains of a banana.  I have found out that bananas should only be fed rarely to the turtles as it throws off their phosphorous/calcium ratios.

The ivy bed, a favorite haunt on hot afternoons.

Picture of pool for turtles.

The pool, which attracted a bullfrog for a few weeks.  The pool has also housed aquatic painted turtles and red-eared sliders.   Naraht approaches for a quick dip.

Linus emerges from the mud under a pine tree.


The pictures above were taken at the old place.  We've moved and Carol, Terry, Linus and a new face, Quasi, have joined us.  See them in their new digs here.
