Shelly :)

Posted by sabinabear , 05 May 2012 · 779 views

I have the cutest pet turtle and her name is Shelly, I dont know what kind of turtle she is.
Her story is that a friend found 6 of them in her backyard and I asked her for one and she gave it to me. She had painted its shell, right above its tail, with a pink nailpolish to be able to tell she's a girl but it broke my heart and I ended up taking the nailpolish off. Everyone knows they stay warm and cool by their shell and they CANNOT be painted or covered due to their pores. Anyway, I am deeply in love with her. My fiance and I play with her all the time! She is my baby girl :)

I would really appreciate it if someone would help me figure out what kind of land turtle she is.
I feed her lettuce, apple, and carrots and has been eatting all of them just fine.
She is not big at all, about 2 inches big (including her head).

Thank you for reading! <3

I can't tell by the picture what type she is. Can you turn her over? Does she have red lines on her face?

It looks like you have a keeled box turtle. I highly recommend the book, "Box Turtles" by Tess Cook or the web site This has a lot of very good, useful information. Your turtle has 5 front toes which is an identifying factor however, it is a baby so I'm not positive if more colors are yet to arise on it's shell. Best of luck & I hope this helps !
