got Myrtle for my birthday last year, and she has brightened my day
every day since then. She is a box turtle with cute little yellow spots
on her front legs. She lives in a terrarium in my room, and when it's
warm enough outside, she loves to roam around my yard as I watch her.
Her favorite thing to do outside is wander into our garden and eat
tomatoes off of the vines! Besides tomatoes, she loves worms, grapes,
strawberries, lettuce, and especially bananas. However, she can be very
picky! She'll eat up a red grape in seconds, but if I set a green grape
in front of her, she won't even touch it. She is a very spoiled little
turtle, but I love her very much. She's a little shell full of sunshine.
