Slow and Steady

My husband snapped this photo of an Eastern box turtle crossing our front lawn the other morning. It’s been years since we’ve seen one around here. I love the pattern on his shell.

    what a beauty! although the patterns on its shell looks like those pesky raccoon tracks that i find around my barn every morning (after they raid the horse feed!) 🙂

  2. I love turtles, but very rarely see any. ): Margie

  4. I have not seen a box turtle since I lived in PA. Other turtles, just not the Box. Cute little guy.

    Cute turtle. They are considered threatened, too many children picking them up as pets. Great find and photo.

    Beautiful critter! He seems to have the same pretty pattern all over.

  15. I used to see turtles all the time when I was a child but haven’t seen one in years, either. Wonder why….

    He is awfully cute! I don’t see many turtles around here. I’m sure our dry conditions don’t help.

  17. We’ve had several box turtles in our yard the past couple of years. Saw one laying eggs under the rose bush a few weeks ago!
