68. It usually poops at the same time every day - early in the morning

In spring after it awakens from hibernation I usually put it outside in the backyard during the day. I leave the back door slightly open because it likes to come and go from outside to inside and back outside again all day maybe to adjust its body temperature. At night I always bring it inside because I live near the ocean and, as a desert animal, it doesn't like the humidity outdoors we have at night. At night I always have it sleep in the same place, on paper with a wooden board above its head (turtles feel more secure that way), where it poops and pees early in the morning. When it pees, it often makes a high pitched whine in its throat. I feed it a variety of things. It loves cantaloupe melon and I give it one or two slices a day. I give it the greener kinds of lettuce like Romaine and red-headed lettuce. It absolutely adores flowers, especially pink roses from our rosebush and the yellow buds of dandelions. It likes to eat apples that have fallen from our apple tree, the more rotten the better. It also eats lots of plain grass from the lawn. Because I give it a lot of cantaloupe, it pees every day.
