Eastern Box Turtles for sale
What does an Eastern Box Turtle eat?
Eastern box turtles for sale are opportunistic omnivores that will eat both animal and plant matter. Because are known to eat a lot of different things, including fruits, berries, mushrooms, flowers, grasses, etc. Mostly all box turtles can catch prey but will happily eat carrion as well. In contrast, when in the wild, they catch suitably sized animals such as snails, worms, slugs, and beetles. Because of this, when the opportunity presents itself they will happily go after bigger prey as well, e.g. birds caught in nets.
The Eastern Box Turtle Natural Habitat
Eastern box turtles prefer deciduous forests and mixed forests. (A deciduous forest have trees and shrubs that shed their leaves seasonally. In comparison, a mixed forest has evergreen trees as well, such as evergreen firs and pine trees.)
Eastern Box Turtle Lifespan
(How old can an eastern box turtle get?)
Eastern box turtles exceeding a hundred years of age have been encountered in the wild. Due to unsuitable living conditions and faulty diets, captive eastern box turtles often die much younger than this. As a result of good care, an Eastern box turtles can be very long-lived, possibly up to 100 years. Sadly, many in captivity will not survive that long (30 to 50 years is more typical; even shorter with less than ideal care).
Eastern Box Turtles – Water
While box turtles are not aquatic, it is not unusual for them to wade into shallow water to drink and have a soak. Make sure a shallow pan of water is readily accessible (and kept clean) at all times. On hot, dry days, run a sprinkler or mist their pen for added moisture.
First of all, before you buy your new baby eastern box turtle for sale online and have him shipped, make sure you have food readily available. Secondly, take a look at the natural diet of the eastern box turtle and try to give it similar foods in captivity. Of course, one does not have to be super-strict. For instance, wild eastern box turtles are unlikely to encounter kiwi fruit since that fruit is native to another part of the world. Lastly, realize that but they will still do nicely on a diet that contains kiwi in captivity since they are generalized fruit-eaters in the wild.
Feed the right box turtle foods for sale
As a rule of thumb, give your eastern box turtle roughly 50% protein-rich food (such as worms, beetles, grasshoppers, etc), 10% dark leafy greens and 40% vegetables, fruits and mushrooms. We also feed Mazuri tortoise chow to our Eastern box turtles for sale, and they love it!
Box turtles live a long time!
Similarly to other box turtle species, Easterns can be long-lived! Because of this, when considering where to buy an eastern box turtle for sale near me, please also understand your new pet box turtle for sale online could live over 50 years and make plans accordingly! These can be lifelong pet box turtles for sale.
Eastern Box Turtle Geographic Distribution Most noteworthy, the Eastern box turtle lives in the eastern United States, from eastern Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to the Atlantic Ocean. We can find Easterns all the way from southern Florida in the south to southern Main and the southern and eastern parts of the Michigan Upper Peninsula in the north.
Eastern Box Turtle Temperature and Light
If kept in an outdoor pen, make sure there are both sunny and shady areas available (the turtle should be able to move from cooler to warmer areas as necessary).
Indoors, a terrarium will need a heat source as well as a UVB emitting reptile light. Provide a basking spot with temperatures of 85 to 88 F, maintaining the terrarium with a gradient down to about 75 F. The nighttime temperature should not drop below 70 F.

I ordered a juvenile leopard gecko for sale for my son as a pet for Christmas.He/she arrived safe and sound! My son had been wanting one for some time and when we had no luck finding the morph he wanted I began looking online and found CBReptile. I messaged them to make sure the Lil guy would be safe to travel all the way to S. Louisiana. They responded quickly and even shipped him out the same day so I could have him before Christmas! Thank you guys and if we decide to add another baby gecko to our gecko family you will be first on my list to order from!

Nicest Dalmatian crested geckos!
I am extremely please with my new baby crested gecko. i ordered a baby female dalmatian crested gecko for one of my other geckos and she’s amazing.!

I am really happy with her and their prices are the best considering the quality of the geckos they breed!

CBreptile is AWESOME. no matter what questions I have they are always helpful to respond quickly. We purchased a well started box turtle for sale a couple of months ago, and he is doing great.

We just bought him “turtle friend” for Christmas which arrived this morning and is now hiding safely so my children do not see until Christmas morning. I had a ton of questions the first purchase and CB was more then happy to help me!

I could not have had a better transaction! I would buy a tortoise online from CB reptile again in a flash!
The best leopard gecko breeder!
I received my two baby tangerine leopard geckos in the mail. I was very nervous as not a lot of people were shipping. However, the way my babies were packed and shipped was excellent. They arrived safe and sound. They don’t even appear to be too stressed. And can I just say that they are the cutest Leo’s ever and their color is outstanding. More vivid then I had even expected or could have hoped for. I will definitely be purchasing more reptiles for sale from them. 5 stars isn’t enough.
Definitely a repeat customer!
Definitely a repeat customer. I ordered my crested gecko for sale Dec 21st. Of course I wasn’t expecting it for Christmas but I wasn’t expecting the amazing customer service either. CBReptiles cares about their reptiles and that’s amazing. Someone called me every few days to update me on the shipping process. They took every precaution from holiday traffic to winter weather to assure I got a live energetic baby gecko in this weather at this time of year and it worked. It arrived today, safe and sound. The heat pack was still warm.
