Hi! My name is Munster because I love October!

Believe it or not, I was brought into the shelter as a stray and when no one came to reclaim me I was transferred to the rescue to find my forever home.

When I arrived I was as small as a golf ball in mid-September 2021. Now, just over a year and a bit later, I am finally big enough to start looking for my forever home.

So a little bit about me, I'm an omnivore which means while bugs are obviously my favorite, I require a diet that also includes leafy greens, lots of veggies, and a touch of fruit. The rescue will help you with the foods that I love and need.

My species can live up to 70 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! Remember I am only about 2 years old so I have a long way to go.

I require a large indoor enclosure and possibly a safe and humid place outside on warm days. Unlike tortoises, you will need to ensure that my enclosure retains a higher humidity. My kind is not native here as we typically dwell in a marshier humid habitat, similar to parts of Florida. Don't worry, the rescue will provide you with all of the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival :)
