This is going to be a 3 part post…too much photos, so I couldn’t put them all up in one post. Part two will be the most interesting one because it shows how smart turtles can be 😉

I do believe I had mention so many times how active Kurome and Papoe are. I couldn’t set them in them out without full attention, they will get lost somewhere if I didn’t look at them carefully. Kroten is the most calm one who always enjoys the sun to the fullest.

This is what I did to contain one of them and set the other one to roam around outside.


In the end, I became tired to chase them around. Then this idea came out, to put both of them inside a cardboard. Papoe and Kurome are inside the box while Kroten stays outside.


Papoe and Kurome can get the sunlight and hide from it at the same time…the choices are theirs to make.






While Kroten is very calm outside the box,


The little ones are constantly moving inside the box.



“LET ME OUT!!!!”



“We need to do something with this wall!”

As you can see, Papoe is plotting something 😉

I will show you what happens on our next post 😉

  1. I like the idea with the turtle pen made with a box… sadly Hell-mut is a climber and we probably need a closed outdoor cage for him :o)

      Thank you easy.
      Unfortunately, the pen has to be changed soon…Papoe is getting more creative everyday.
      I think they also need closed outdoor cage like hell-mut

  2. Cute turtle photos. You coukd consider putting the pen somewhere where there is vegettion, so they would have something to explore?

    i wonder what the next is. Are they broke it? Because I used that idea before… And in the end my girls teared the cardboard apart.

    I was VERY surprised a few years ago to have to slow down my car as someone’s loose turtle RAN across the road!

    I didn’t know they could put their heads straight up like that! Wow!

    That’s a good idea, but I think one of them is going to get their nose under the edge of the cardboard and wiggle their way out. You need a box with a bottom!

  7. pic 10 looks like Kurome is banging on the box!
