eastern box turle

Primarily found in woodlands, box turtles can be found in meadows or grasslands during wet seasons. Above, an eastern box turtle rests near the edge of woodlands in Loudoun County, Va., on May 4, 2018. Box turtles can live to be over 100 years, though disease and predators often limit their lifespan. If you find one crossing a road make sure to move it out of danger in the direction it was already traveling. (Photo by Will Parson/Chesapeake Bay Program)
