Janitor is an adult male *Gulf Coast Box Turtle who was brought in because of a nasty respiratory infection. His completely recovered from his illness, but Janitor has been displaced, meaning we do not know his point of origin. Since box turtles have high site fidelity, releasing him anywhere other than his home range would result in him wandering aimlessly, and likely into the path of danger. Since we don't know where his home range is, it is in his best interest to adopt to a qualified home rather than release him.
