Box Turtle Pictures Gallery

Revised 4/30/2014
 

The box turtles found in North America are in the family Emydidae and genus Terrapene.
There are two species, the eastern box turtle (carolina)
and the western box turtle (ornata).

There are four subspecies of eastern box turtles:
Eastern - Terrapene c. carolina,
Gulf Coast - Terrapene c. major,
Three-toed - Terrapene c. triunguis,
and Florida - Terrapene c. bauri.

There are two subspecies of western box turtles:
Ornate - Terrapene o. ornata
and Desert - Terrapene o. luteota.

Generally speaking, subspecies of a species can interbreed. That is not to say
that the females will always be receptive but the males will try.

Box turtles are very popular pet turtles and can be personable pets
especially when raised from babies. We really enjoy them.
