Eastern Box Turtle

#22 Eastern Box Turtle

The Eastern Box turtle is a funny-looking animal, but its lifespan- of at least 130 years- is no joke! The oldest Eastern Box Turtle on record is 138 years old.

The average weight of an adult of this species is 1.5 lbs, which is quite tiny! These turtles are native to South-eastern USA.

You would be amazed to know that despite being turtles, Eastern Box Turtles are more terrestrial than aquatic. They move extremely slowly and reproduce only a few hatchlings every year.

Due to these factors, these turtles are vulnerable species and require protection.
