Looks like a high red 3 toed, I believe terryo is looking for one.

Beautiful. Wish I were living somewhere that I would stumble upon them in the wild, that must have been a nice experience : )

Very nice male three toed. Don't see them like that too often.

wow you can tell he is male just by that picture?
I'm going outside right now to see if he is still around
I always wanted a three toed box turtle but I don't think it would be good to just pluck him up from the wilds

This is O/T but I had to comment on your torts name. My son just names one of our baby boxies Fluffy and I thought it was funny. I didn't think anyone else would choose that name :) He named the other one Beast. Fluffy he named right away Beast took a few months to get named.

It's pretty easy to distinguish adult male and female box turtles. Almost always, males will have brighter colored skin in all the subspecies.

I don't think it's a good idea to pluck him out of the wild either unless it was to place him in a good breeding program. Even then, my opinion would on it depends on a lot of other factors factors.
