Eastern Box Turtle (Robin Baranowski, NPS Photo)

Native to the eastern part of the U.S., eastern box turtles (Terrapene carolina) are land dwellers that can live up to 100 yrs. in the wild! In many of NCBN's parks they are of special concern, so if you happen to spot one, let the staff know. This turtle was found in a meadow at Cape Cod NS.
