Be, the Box Turtle
Hello Surfer, Welcome to my helpful herp site :)
Well guess what? As much as my webmistress loves me, she almost killed me!
She didn't know how to care for me, and didn't have access to much help.
So for all you potential herpetologists.....the links below take you to information you need
to have a happy healthy turtle, or reptile in general, as your pet.......

Thanks for caring,
Be, the Box Turtle
