Hi! My name is Star Burst because of my beautiful shell.

I was brought into the shelter as emergency boarding and when no one came to reclaim me I was transferred to the rescue to find my forever home.

So a little bit about me; I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. While I am small now I will grow between 10 and 16 inches in length and I can weigh up to 30 lbs!
Though there is no way to really tell what age I am, based on my color and size I am a juvenile. My species can live more than 50 years if we have a lean, high-fiber diet and a low-stress environment with the right temps and light. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us!

I require an outdoor enclosure and possibly a safe place inside when the weather is bad. Don't worry, the rescue will provide you with all of the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival :)
