No problem! Glad you let him go. Boxies can make good pets, but they're declining over much of their range, partially due to the pet trade, so it's best to go captive-bred or rescue if you do decide that you want a box turtle!
Thanks, I was thinking it was a baby box because I couldn't think of any other land turtles that would be there. Of course he was reluctantly released...
Very cute juvenile turtle of some sort. I am not sure of the species but here is a link that might help you with an ID:http://www.herpsofnc.org/herps_of_NC/tur...I hope this little guy was released after his photo opportunity.
