Meet the new girl.

Meet Gladys, the Gulf Coast box turtle:

At the vet yesterday, while getting Cyril groomed, the subject of box turtles came up, as it usually does with my vet.  It just so happened that the Humane Society had given the clinic a turtle with a shell infection to be treated and then be adopted out, and we have plenty of room. And, as Gus is not a good eater, which has always worried me, adding another turtle to the habitat can trigger competitive eating, so Gladys will be a therapy turtle, as well.  So she's useful, as well as pretty.
