Beautiful 3 Toed Box Turtle
Photo By Teresa Mathews

  • Title: Beautiful 3 Toed Box Turtle
  • State/Province/Region: Arkansas
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Woods/ Rural
  • Nearest Town: Hector
  • Brief Directions: 5 Miles South of Hector, AR, 12 miles North of Atkins and 20 miles NE of Russellville, AR.
  • Notes: It didn't stay around long after we released him back where we saw it. I imagine that it went under our home for the winter. That was the direction it was headed. I was told one in a thousand of that species will have a beautiful yellow star pattern on their shell. Plus, it could be possible that 3-Toed Box turtles will cross breed with Ornate Box Turtles so some of the 3-toed will have the Ornate Yellow Starburst design like this one did.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: A case of mistaken Identity. I thought the Box Turtle was an Ornate Box Turtle from the beautiful design on his shell. Fooled the Expert too. Alas, he ended up being just an unusual 3-toed Box Turtle. I never have seen one so colorful. It was measured and aged to be around 10 years old. I give the finding to my toy Beagle who found it for me on our woody property at home.
  • Gear: Canon 30SD with 75-300mmm lens
