Found this guy in a parking lot at my work. Didn't want him to get run over by the cars. Seems to be an eastern box turtle. 6 inch shell and male. Anyone wants to take him in?

Hum, kinda looks like my buddy "Bump" that I have here.

It'd be best to release him deep in some woods near your job.

This is a non native species to California. As such he should not be released. It most likely is a lost pet. I’d look for lost turtle signs near you.
