Megan Spots is our largest female turtle, and one of the most frequently spotted since 2014. Before that time, nobody ever took a picture of her, so we aren’t sure how long she has been in the courtyard. What we do know is that she is a female (brown eyes, flat plastron), and that she loves to eat chicken (in the picture above) as a special treat! Of course, box turtles can’t eat chicken every day, they need lots of variety in their diet… including plenty of greens!
On this page, you can try to search for any of Megan Spots’ babies by selecting a younger turtle and choosing her as the mom. Be sure to enter those microsatellites correctly! Oh, and if you aren’t sure what microsatellites are, click here.
