Box turtle at West Meadow Beach

Monday, July 15, 2019,

This is a female Eastern Box Turtle that I found at West Meadow Beach in Setauket. The reason I know she’s female is that she was starting to dig a nest when I found her. There are other ways to discern the gender of a Box Turtle but nesting behavior is generally a dead giveaway. JK
