Baby Box Turtle

Katie spotted this little guy while we were walking the edge of a bean field in Marion County, Illinois. He was one of the smallest box turtles I had seen in a long time. Not a patient turtle, he seemed very much in a hurry to go somewhere. I can see why it would be tempting to keep these guys, but it is important to let them stay wild.
