New video of Peanut!
Watch Turtle do fearless battle with a tomato: a story of hope in the face of despair, courage without fear, and ambition against hunger.
I am educated on the diet of eastern box turtle juveniles. Peanut eats 60% animal matter including crickets and worms, and a variety of vegetables such as carrots, cauliflower, romaine lettuce, and broccoli. "Baby turtle eating a carrot stick" just isn't as cute to post to youtube. He also is given calcium supplements as well and provided a UV basking lap for the day. His tank is lined with moist forrest moss. So I believe he is well cared for and has the opportunity to live to a ripe old age.
WOW you are right! That is incredible! Thanks for pointing that out :P
Due to overwhelming concern I would like to notify everyone that no carpets were stained in the making of this video.
Sadly, Frank is actually missing most of her back right leg and what you see is the nub. She was abandoned by her previous owner and I am not sure how it happened. Nevertheless, she is still a very happy three legged turtle!
