"Hello. I live in Kansas where ornate box turtles and sliders run wild. Four years ago I found an ornate box turtle. I made a nice large outdoor pen for him and feed him mulberries and grasshoppers. Ever since he has been a great pet. He hibernates by himself in the winter in the outdoor pen and comes up early every April. (To Adrian, it would be best to loosen up some soil by its hideout and let it hibernate by itself.) Recently, I found a mate for him about his size. They mate together. If anyone has advice about breeding this type of turtle in its natural habitat, or if it's a good or bad idea to do this, please post something to let me know. "
