while mowing the lawn i nearly ran over a baby box about the size of a quarter! i checked him out ...seemed fine, so i left him right where he was...only thing is he hasnt gone anywhere in 4 days.he is burrowed into the grass near an old board. is this normal. i'm not really looking for a new pet, but is he safe?should i move him or try to feed him? or should i leave mother nature alone. please advise...i'll be crushed if the little guy doesnt make it because of my ignorance.
