-Additional information: ***I can live 30 to 40 years in captivity!!*** Three-toed box turtles aren't especially well-suited to be pets for new turtle owners or in homes with very young children. Tatyana will need a basking spot with temperatures of 85 to 88 F, She should have easy access to a shallow pan of water at all times, access to hiding spots, and loose litter for burrowing. Adult three-toed box turtles are omnivores. Approximately half of their diet should be made up of vegetables, fruit, and hay/grasses. The remainder is made up of low-fat protein sources; whole live foods are ideal (earthworms, slugs, snails, mealworms, crickets, grasshoppers, small fish, etc).
