Eastern Box Turtles

The eastern box turtle is a common reptile in Virginia. You can easily recognize it by its yellowish stripes. I have heard that a virginian has suggested that it should be Virginias state reptile. It hasn’t been decided yet.
We found the turtle in the picture pretty well hidden. But it didn’t stick around for very long before hiding in its shell.
