    Hi "norma"
    We have had our sole box turtle for over 18 years. He is a beautiful male specimen indoor kept free of parasitesas far as we can tell. We have been largely keeping him on a "salad" type diet as we are mainly vegetarians ourselves (my hubby is the occasional meat eater). If you wish, reply to my email and I will send you some pics. We named him Ariel. Thanks for posting, Kathy

    I live in Arcadia Florida, and have plenty of male, and female box tortoises.
    I've been breeding them for about 25 years. I have it down to a science.
    If you want a male I could probably give you one as long as it will be taken care of properly. Call or text David at 863-473-1697.
    I do sell the babies each year. I usually hatch out about 75- 100. I will have babies starting in May, and they continue to hatch through November.
    I will say no more, but you have my number. 🐢 Man

I just bought a home and am ready again to start acquiring a few box turtles. I'm interested in all the species and have plenty of experience with them. in 2013 I had over 12 of them and unfortunately had to part with them as I was offered a very good job that made me move but now Im settled and ready to get some of my favorite turtles. Any suggestion's family? I live in Davenport FL real close to Orlando, FL

    I think if he does not eat in a hour or two you should take your little friend to the vet.
