Found basking along creek. Male. First box turtle in 5 years +
Forests, fields, creeks etc.
I really want to see one. I live in PA too. Great photo! I saw lots of them when I was a kid (long ago) in NJ. And I always liked them. My favorite turtle. I am so glad you found one after all this time.
It's been close to 10 years since I've seen a Box Turtle in my area, so I know it felt good to find that guy. Habitat fragmentation has really thrown their numbers off. Nice picture and congrats on the find.
