I didn't get many pictures, he was too shy. But I do have two other box turtle spottings. Moving from the west I love all the new species.

Hi zoomanallen! Nice turtle spotting! You are there in my old stomping grounds, where I have quite a few reptile spottings. I lived in Columbia before moving to NY. Do you have any other photos of this guy?
