:rescued a three toe from a guy my husband works with who didn't know what to do. he had it in a shoe box, no light, trying to feed it dry turtle pellets. I've had it since August. He's in a nice big tank with UV light, lots of insects and worms to eat (and the occassional piece of fruit) and he seems to be doing alright. He eats well and everything but he's really inactive. He just lays in the corner unless he's eating. My ornate boxes are so active and responsive I'm just wondering if this is normal for baby three toes or what. Any ideas appreciated.

He could be scared. Boxies should not be kept in tanks because they can see outside of it and it makes them feel secure. He should also have a lot of hide spots. YOu should also have an outdoor pen for your boxie because they tend to do much much better. It is advised only to keep sick or injured boxies indoors. Unless in winter, where they can overwinter indoors if to sick, to hibernate.
