:lol: This turtle is all over the place with ID

I posted in the what am I section on TT, and it seems as though she's a three-toed boxie!

So today I updated Brownies habitat, according to her new found requirements, put in a better soaking dish, put in a bunch of sphagnum moss in the hides, and misted it, then put some more sphagnum around a corner or two of the habitat, then soaked that with water.

I flipped on the UVB, set her back in there, she was like a different turtle.

Looked at the hide, turned around, "pranced" all around her new moss, and then plowed right into the soaking dish for about 15 minutes. I think it was the improper habitat that was bumming her out, not her personality!

Good you changed thing s around. Three Toed's need more humidity. She's beautiful. They also soak in their water a lot.
Here's Izzy eating Mazuri. She loves it.

You should also put some cuttle bone in there for calcium. Mine munches on it almost every day. You can see the little bite marks in the picture. You can get it at any pet store in the bird section.

Izzy looks great!

Ok, I'll go grab some of squirts surplus cuttle and put it in there for her.

Oh and when you say mazuri...is it like a pellet food that you soaked? I'm interested in it for sure.

Nah, you both have it wrong...she is just telling Chris - very politely, just like any woman when she is speaking to the men in her life - where he should carefully store the camera so it is handy when he needs to use it again in the future...
