Really Neil? i never imagined the color of the eyes changed depending on gender (I don´t know if you may use gender for animals...). Thank you for sharing that =) Nice picture Drew, thank too =)

Look at those cool red eyes! Usually male box turtles have red eyes like this one, and females have yellow/brown eyes. Cool spotting!
