Rose is an Eastern Box turtle and she has been a part of our family for nearly 19 years. The Summer before my oldest daughter turned 5, she became obsessed with turtles and that is all she wanted for her Birthday. We were going to get her a water turtle but then decided on a Box Turtle because they are much easier to care for.
Rose eats turtle pellets but she also enjoys Earth worms, fruits and veggies, her favorites are Blackberries and she loves cottage cheese. During the Winter months, she hangs out in the Sunroom under the plants but once the weather warms up, she will take up residence on the screen porch. Rose loves to have the underside of her neck rubbed and enjoys a soak in a warm bath. And here are some sweet vintage turtles!
