Here are a couple of the box turtles that live wild in my yard at my weekend house. I see them in the spring and summer. The one in the box we found while my husband was mowing. I put him in a box on the porch for about 30 minutes to make sure he hadn't been hit by the mower. Luckily he had not. We've seen him several times roaming the yard in the past few years. One lives in the front yard and the other in the back yard. ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1419397572.316650.jpgImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1419397588.465351.jpg

How neat to see them out in the wild, even if the wild is in your own backyard. :)
