Its 71° here in Kansas and the turtles get to go outside tomorrow. I will try to get good pictures of them. The grass is brown so maybe they will be easier to keep an eye on? I made a large box just 4 sides last year to put them in but whey like to roam.

Will they all go out? They're still hard to spot over brown grass, well it gives me trouble anyway.

How big is the box? I use 2 8'x8' "fences" the last few years but I think I might try something different. I'm thinking of making a smaller container, maybe with casters and lined with grass for them (but for one turtle at a time).

They look like they're enjoying it. Do you stay out with them or leave them alone?

I'd say the photos turned out well.

We've not quite flirted with 60 and there are still patches of snow here.

I or my girlfriend stay with them at all times. They are hard to take pictures of . They don't like to pose!
