Box turtle adults
Here's the old momma and her 11-yr old son. I found her in 1987 on NC-98 near the Durham/Wake Co line. She was full grown then, so she must be over 30 yrs old now. Notice she has 7 scutes down the middle (vertebral scutes) in a zig-zag pattern rather than the normal 5 in a straight row. She also has more yellow on the head than most female box.
