When the large shell-less beings think of hay, they typically think of the large, ponderous, gassy beings who all seem to be named “Moo.”

But this is just because the shell-less beings don’t hibernate.

Hibernation is awesome, by the way. All you have to do is find a really comfy snoozing spot, dial down your metabolism, shut your adorable red box turtle eyes and go to sleep for a really, really, really long time.

It’s like a championship napping contest where you always win first prize.

A sleepy box turtle prepares to head down into his hay pile, dial down his metabolism, close his precious red eyes and go for the guaranteed gold.

Plus, the hay is a nearly perfect color-match for your own most excellent coloration.

This makes it both optimal for winter napping camouflage and a fashion-forward selection for decorating the single, suave and oh-so-manly solo box turtle boudoir come spring.

Note the near-perfect color-match between the color of the hay and the color of the snoozing box turtle inside it.
