After cleaning the classroom on Monday, I took our turtle to the pet store to find out exactly what kind he is.
So, we still are not completely positive but it has been narrowed to to a box turtle or a Missouri Mud turtle. I won't know if it is a boy or a girl until it gets bigger, so we decided on a girl for right now so we could name her.
Mertle the Turtle
She loves her knew habitat and large meal worms!
Stop by and see her next year, she will be in our classroom.
I think I might need to take pictures next to an object so you will be able to see her growth! it's a little hard to see how small she really is. Right now she is burrowing in her dirt...
