Box Turtle at Wolf Howl Animal Preserve
The Eastern Box Turtle prefers moist forested areas, but will inhabit meadows, pastures and floodplains. If conditions remain constant, a Box Turtle will spend its entire life in an area slightly larger than a football field.
The Box Turtle has a diet which consists of slugs, earthworms, wild berries and mushrooms that are poisonous to man.
New York Indians were responsible for eliminating this turtle from the area between Ohio and New England. The Indians in that area ate the meat of the Box Turtle, used the shells for ceremonial rattles and also buried the Box Turtle with their dead.
