The older a box turtle is, the more eggs she lays. Clutches start out at two or three. Boxer is at least 14 years old. We thought there would be more babies in Scooter's clutch but figured that predators or the harsh summer took a toll.
Since this little guy hibernated through the winter all on his or her own, I think the name should be Lucky. However, my husband and son seem to remember a promise that the next turtle be named Gamera.
Welcome to the Garden of Good Intentions, Gamera.
