Florida box turtles have a typical lifespan of 30-40 years, but some can live to 100 years old! Despite being called a turtle, these guys prefer to stay on land, similar to tortoises. But they can be found in damp, swampy areas.

Our resident box turtle is a surrendered pet and because it is too domesticated, it wouldn’t be able to survive out in the wild.
