I started to name him after a politician or a church since he's so hard-shelled, but that seemed cruel, since he/she is beautiful, minds his/her own business, doesn't bother others, is quiet, and doesn't seem unhappy. He/she is a three-toed box turtle, I think.
I'm thinking of naming it"Kinkenborg," (Klinky for short), after a favorite author who wrote "Timothy, or notes from an abject reptile." Other suggestions?
(P.S. You should read "Timothy." It's short, an interesting read about a real historic English turtle. Here are my blog comments about the book Timothy.)
