Box Turtle? Crossing the road
Second one of the evening.
Just east of mile marker 46 on Hwy 54. Both sides of the highway looked like horrible habitat, just agricultural fields as far as could be seen.
Sitting along the side of the nature trail.
Found crossing Johnson Road from east to west. Johnson Rd is a wide well-maintained dirt road, south of Interstate 10, in flat, desert grassland habitat. I believe this individual is male.
Terrapene ornata is a species of North American box turtle sometimes referred to as the western box turtle or ornate box turtle.
