Eastern box turtle
We have some fantastically high colored eastern box turtles for sale. Eastern box turtles have a high, dome-like carapace and a hinged plastron that allows total shell closure hence the “box turtle” name. The box turtle carapace can be of variable coloration, but is normally found brownish or black and is accompanied by a yellow, orange or even red or blue radiating pattern of lines, spots or blotches. Skin coloration, like that of the shell, is variable but is usually brown or black with some yellow, orange, red, blue or white spots or streaks.
This coloration closely mimics that of the winter leaf of the tulip poplar and provides natural protection from predators in the wild. In isolated populations, males may have blue patches on their cheeks, throat, and front legs. As a rule of thumb, male eastern box turtles normally possess red eyes whereas females usually have brown eyes. Eastern box turtles feature a sharp, horned beak, stout limbs, and their feet are webbed only at the base. Eastern box turtles have 5 toes on each front leg, and normally 4 toes on each hind leg, although some individuals may possess 3 toes on each hind leg.
Staying small in size, most range from 4.5 to 6 inches, but occasionally reach over 7 inches. In the captivity, box turtles are known to live over 100 years, but in the wild, often live much shorter lives due to disease and predation. Easter box turtles can make great pet box turtles and are easy to care for and can provide years of companionship for any reptile enthusiast.
