This morning my dog was barking spastically at something in the back yard. He was dancing in circles around it and I figured it was a snake. I cautiously walked towards it and was nearly convinced it was a snake based on the markings of the creature that I could see above the grass. Suddenly I realized it was a turtle! Turtle turtle!

It is clearly a box turtle and is about 4 inches from tail to nose. It\'s sooooo small. The problem is I need some good information on what\'s best for the turtle. My son had been asking for a pet and since we already have 2 red-ear sliders I am inclined to build a habitat for the turtle and keep him. Any feedback and information would be greatly appreciated.

I\'m off to review the links and other resources from this site. Great website!

First find out what kind of turtle it is. This site should help you with that. Then buy the book \"Turtles and Tortoises for Dummies\" Its the best book it will tell you everything you need to know about your turtle and how to house him. Good luck
