I love this turtle, I had a pet one for like 10 years my 3 children and I adore her, smartest turtle you ever saw, and the fastest also.

What a beautiful box turtle! Since you know the identity of your organism, please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. This allows the spotting to fully enter the database and become complete, letting groups and individuals use the data and find your spotting. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. Thank you!

Here's a great Project Noah blog entry that explains the spotting process:
