Mr. Box Turtle

Hello there Mr. Box Turtle. The Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina) was designated the official state reptile of North Carolina in 1979. Pretty cool. They’re everywhere it seems during the summer. I was had a Golden Retriever named Brandy, when I was a teenager, who could sniff out Box Turtles in the woods. He would always bring back one sometimes several a day!
