Hi everyone, found this beautiful male box turtle crossing my street. The car in front of me nearly hit him(I see way too many dead ones). Box turtles have become rare in southern Louisiana. Actually, this is the first one I've seen since I was a kid, & this species is responsible for getting me into the hobby. Fed him some greens, berries, & mealworms, and then released him in the woods where he was headed. Hope everyone has a great day!

Aw - what a pretty face. That's what I like about box turtles. Most of them are so personable taken right out of the wild. The Pacific pond turtle is like that too. I've never seen one that was 'wild.' They're always open and not afraid.

How lucky you are to have seen one in the wild.

I hope you gave him a stern talking-to about walking in the road.
