Hi! I saw this baby tortoise when I was hiking a year ago in Knoxville, TN and I never realized that there are tortoises in TN, would someone be able to tell me what species this is? Thanks! E08BB2DE-BD28-448E-B6F4-D21EE0812486.jpeg

It's a baby Eastern Box turtle. Though not technically a tortoise they do live on land.
