More Photos of Mae...

        Here's what Mae likes to do most: hide.  Most reptiles feel safest when they are able to feel their environments around them.  That's why snakes like gopher holes, aquatic turtles run for the water when somethings approaches them, and box turtles bury themselves.  Mae likes to dig herself in near her undertank heat source.  But she also keeps her head up in case an unsuspecting worm "happens" to pass her by.  The photos below show her color patterns.  Now that I'm keeping her in Aspen shavings, her shell and skin stay much cleaner.  She's very pretty for her age.
