Box Turtles

Box Turtles are commonly found throughout the state of Alabama. Males are easily distinguished from females due to their brightly colored shells and deep red eyes. Though they enjoy wading in shallow water, Box Turtles are unable to swim. Five Box Turtles live at the 4-H Center. Click here for more information or to book a program.
