Hi Kylelza! Welcome to Project Noah. You must be a fan of turtles! Me too. This spotting should have the common name Eastern Box Turtle, and you should split this up into 5 separate spottings assuming you found these box turtles at different places and times. Those shell patterns are really colorful! Here in Missouri, our 3-toed box turtles usually have a drab brown shell.
