How do you clean a "fresh kill" turtle. I would like to keep all of the shell intact. It looks like a beautiful box turtle. It went up against a car and lost,only the head was damaged.

How about beetle's. Dermisted Beetles. These are meat eating bugs used to clean bones and skulls. I would think they would work well. There are many skull cleaners around this site. Hit the orange button.

Be careful

In most states box turtles are protected! Check with your local DNR. P{ossesion even if it was a road kill is illegal. Be safe!
