Box Turtle Three Toe basic information

Three Toed Box Turtles will grow to lengths of about 6 inches. As with the other North American box turtles, the plastron is hinged at the front and rear, allowing the turtle to close itself inside the shell when it feels threatened. The Three Toed Box Turtle's carapace is highly domed and has a median keel that is more pronounced in some individuals than in others. The shell may be more or less uniformly colored or any combination of shades of tan, beige, brown, and olive; and they may be marked with a variable assortment of spots, lines, or a combination of the two, but markings tend to fade with age, sometimes completely. On their face and forelimbs they may have scales that are varying shades of red, yellow, orange, or white. The eyes of the males are usually red-orange or red, and those of females tend to be more of a yellow color.
