TommyTommy, Eastern box turtle. 

Arrived in 1994 (age unknown).  Tommy's history is based on his physical condition upon arrival at Cedar Run. He was most likely kept as a pet while a growing juvenile. Improper diet caused metabolic bone disease, which caused damage to his carapace (shell), beak, and nails. Shell cracks would make him not be able to hibernate and survive the winter in the wild. Tommy also suffers from a missing back right leg.

GirlsWinkin', Blinkin', & Nod, Eastern box turtles. 

AKA "the girls." Arrived 2011 (age unknown). The girls arrived at Cedar Run after living at the Newark Museum for many years (they arrived 1988, 1989, and 1999). All 3 have issues with metabolic bone disease, likely caused by an improper diet as youngsters, causing deformed shells.
