As a true Texas 3-toed box turtle, you are a southern gentleman to your core.

But no lady box turtle is going to know this just by looking at you…unless you make sure your outsides match your insides.

If you want to communicate “true Texas box turtle who will make beautiful eggs” there is only one accessory that will do it – hay.

Sometimes called “farmer’s gum,” a strategically-placed hay stem is the best method for bringing your inner southern gentleman out into the open, STAT.

Why add a hay stem to just one side of your mouth when you can double down? This sends the lady turtles the message you are just the southern shelled gentleman they’ve been searching for all their lives!
What strategy should Bruce try next to lure in the lady turtles?
