Florida Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina bauri)

Origin: Florida, United States
Sighted at: My parents’ house, Key West, FL

The Florida box turtle is one of the most common pet turtles in the world! Our family has owned many of them over the years. I forget what this one is named, but it very recently became a mother! We are raising some baby box turtles in an indoor tank.

Florida box turtles eat fruits, vegetables, and small insects.
