Eastern Box Turtle – Terrapene Carolina – Time to come out of your shell

Ever have one of those days when you just want to stay snuggled under your covers and in bed all day.  Looks like this fellow feels the same way.

As these guys wander around, please do not be tempted to bring it in as a pet.  These turtles do not like to live in captivity, and will likely not live very long.  Keep them out in the wild and enjoy them in their native environment.  If they look hurt, or their shell is cracked, again, leave them alone.  These turtles do have the ability to regenerate their shell.
