Here in Texas, hay is a staple…..at least for the large shell-less beings.

But when you wear a shell on your back, hay is a less obvious choice.

In most cases, you naturally gravitate towards leaf litter, greenery and good old-fashioned brown dirt.

But there are certain style advantages to a nice round pile of hay.

For starters, it is a quite complementary tan/green color that sets off your signature olive box turtle shell to perfection.

There is no doubt the tan/green color of the hay provides a perfect backdrop to your flawless olive shell.

Plus, there certainly is no shortage of it – your rescue mommy makes sure of that.

So when temperatures plunge and your body temperature quickly follows, you can crawl underneath all that soft warm hay for a restful nap.

As soon as temperatures start to drop, you can descend down the hay mountain and crawl underneath for a warm, cozy nap.

What does your flock like to bundle up in when it gets cold outside?
