Where I live in VA we’ve got a good population of turtles. My very favorites are box turtles. I’ve seen a bunch this year in all types of habitat from my back yard lawn to the vegetable garden to hardwood forest floor to the the very top of a mountain at about 1000’ feet elevation. There’s just something I find so cool about them. Here are a few I’ve run across recently. I practice 100% photo and release with these critters. Only really handle them if I feel like they’re vulnerable to being run over by a vehicle or mower. Please post up your photos and any interesting details about your box turtle encounters. Cheers.
