Box Turtle as Chew ToyEvery year the Turtle & Tortoise
Society receives calls from people who discovered that their dog has found a
turtle and used it as a chew toy. The images below are of a male eastern
box turtle, Terrapene carolina carolina, rescued from the jaws of a
playful pooch who did not understand that chewing on a turtle could kill
it. It is being cared for by a dedicated turtle care giver.
