I am always taking pictures in order to see details clearly, and I've been watching this one. Eventhough I don't have any adults with blue, this yearling seems to have some blue on it's face. It could very well change into something else, but for now, looks blue to me.

you have some very pretty box turtles. Looks blue to me! Hope it stays that way.

Thanks, You know they change so much, color wise, it's difficult to predict what you end up with. We shall see.

It would be interesting to see if he keeps that color.

I've had a few leopard hatchlings hatch out with completely blue heads, but it only lasts for a few weeks.

The blue that is seen in Easterns and Gulf Coasts is age related. I have seen many animals hatched out of blue pairings, and so far none have hatched or displayed any blue up to this point. Some of those animals are now 5 or 6 years in age....

Thanks, I have only seen adult males with it.

Beautiful! Hope it stays blue. I've noticed with some Eastern's that whatever color they start out with, the color only gets more vivid as they get older, especially if kept outside.

You have the prettiest box turtles. I hate to sound partial... But the coloring is just gorgeous!
