The other evening the Girl came across this Ornate Box Turtle crossing the road in our neighborhood.
This specimen was not ornate enough apparently, as someone felt that it needed a coat of orange paint. I could see that a Three-toed Turtle could use some sprucing up, but this guy? Shame! I suspect an OSU fan.
That would explain a lot.
It seemed pretty used to being handled. It chose to snap at us when our hands got in range rather than pull into its shell.
I wanted to help, so I chased it around with a belt-sander for a while. When it got beyond the extension cord I just let it go.
