Truffle came to us as a quasi-rescue. A friend of ours is a mover. On one of his moves, the client had this turtle and didn't want to move him as well. She convinced him to take the turtle home. They really aren't pet people, so they called me knowing that I am a sucker for reps.
He came with his own aquarium, lights etc., so I figured I couldn't go too wrong. I just had to convince Trevor.
So far no problems. Trevor, doesn't care one way or the other as long as he isn't responsible for him. He has too much going on in his life.
I don't mind adding Truffle. He adds interest to our days. He is a good eater and a fun addition.
Any ideas on his exact species? I think he is a three-toed Floridian box turtle.
