Izzy is getting big now. She is 13 months old. Here are some recent pictures. I can't wait for her to go outside in the Spring. Winter is so long here.

It is very light. Is that OK? I have seen some darker with more color. She is starting to get a lot of color on her legs and head and neck. The picture doesn't do her justice. It is like a dark orange. In the picture it came kind of light orange. She is so friendly and funny. Just makes me laugh all the time.

Looks like the boxie is probably a 3-toed x eastern cross. Mine is the same.. more colorful than a 3toed. Sorry if we've been over this already. I recall a thread on it but not sure if it was you.

You are saying that Izzy is a cross between an Eastern and a Three Toed? Her body is colorful but her shell is very plain. That is surprising because she was sold to me as a Three Toed although I never saw her parents.

Here's mine

He was sold to me as an Eastern. He's only got 3 toes on each back foot tho, and his shell is quite plain. I dont have any recent pics, but he looks about the same now. I was told by several sources that he's a 3toed x eastern cross.

Yours are both adorable btw :-)
