Olive is a young adult female three-toed box turtle who is friendly and engaging. She likes to spend most of her time on hot days buried in her dirt pile, with frequent dips in her pond. Olive eats turtle pellets, scrambled eggs, and live worms and slugs.  She will need an adopter who can provide a humid outdoor environment that is secure on all sides and has a protective netting or fencing along the top to protect her from predators. She will make an excellent companion for a turtle-loving family!

Here's videos of Olive:

To give you an idea of Olive's size, she's 5.5 inches long by 4.5 inches wide.  We're not sure of her age since she was found by someone and brought to a San Diego shelter.  Olive's adoption fee is $20 which will go to help other homeless animals.  If you live outside San Diego County we may allow you to adopt if you'd provide Olive with an exceptional home.

If you'd like to meet Olive please fill out a reptile pre-adoption application.
