Hi All,

I was thrilled to find an Eastern Box Turtle digging a nest in the yard this morning. Picture on my blog at http://underclearskies.wordpress.com/2009/07/01/digging-my-yard/ Seems like they are a species of special concern in Connecticut. Anyone ever built a cage to protect turtle nests - wondering if I should do this and what the requirements would be or do I just leave as is? Any thoughts?
