Keep it or set it free?
We found a box turtle the other day. In a residentual neighborhood where he could easily have been mowed over or ran over by a car. He's got chew marks like a dog or something got him a long time ago. I let my son take him home to play with for a couple days then we were going to set him free in the park (woods)
But my son loves him and has soo much fun with him. (My son is 6)
Anybody had a box turtle? How did it work out?
Is it better to set him free?

We had one for 3 years. It was a nice pet for my son who was 5 at the time. Get a shallow dish for water and turtle pellets at the grocery store, combined with fresh fruits and veggies. Ours loved tomatoes. We have a "Science Center" in our town, my inlaws are on the board there, so they got me in contact with some guy. He told me to go to the pet store and get the tree bark type stuff to put in the bottom of the aquarium, and one of those hollowed out half logs for the turtle to go under. Also, for it to be in a sunny place for warmth unless you want to get a heating rock to put in the cage. All in all, we spent about $50 in the beginning. Also remember that turtles can carry salmonella, so make sure your son washes his hands well after handling it. My son really enjoyed the turtle when we had her.
