A month ago I got a female Eastern box turtle, roughly 15 years old, lovingly neglected by the previous owner. Every metabolic problem you could give a turtle she had, but she's doing well now and I hope in a year or so she'll be in as good a shape as possible, despite some permanent consequences of MBD, poor nail care and poor beak care. IN the mean time I picked up a male Western Box turtle at a pet shop that had already allowed 2 others to die without trying too hard to save them. I don't like the idea of participating in that cycle, i.e. being the end-user of the wild caught turtle trade, but it was going to die. So I bought it on the cheap and he's doing pretty well so far. Anyway, do you think I could house them together someday? The eastern has probably never seen another turtle, likes people and needs to be hand fed to some extent due to the beak damage. The western is currently freaked out by humans but otherwise well. The enclosure is indoors but large (approx 12 sq. ft.). Thanks, Andy.
