This piece was a piece used for educational purposes from an old educator I know... he used this for many years teaching little ones the wonders of nature <3

This is a box turtle shell... though uh oh, it looks like someone or something tried to eat it... I'm unsure but I say it is either a bite that caused it to shatter like that OR someone shot him... hopefully because he was dying and had to be put down :( I doubt my educator friend would accept a turtle who had been shot for fun! He'd probably strange the SOB!

I hope his story ended fair, because I love turtles and nothing deserves to die just for fun :(

Roughly 3" x 5" x 4.5"
He has no bottom plate and no scutes left, but you can flip him over and see his spine <3
He does have some dirt and spider webs, but I love the look and if you want, you may clean it to your heart's content! There is a crack from where the hole is to the end of the shell, but the shell is pretty durable :)

Great for use as arts and crafts, collectibles, painting, whatever you want :)

Please view all photos to see the natural beauty! I love the beautiful coloration and detailing on this piece!

Note: I have no idea how this animal died!
