Box turtle species we work with here at tortoise town
Eastern Box Turtles for sale
The Eastern Box Turtle Natural Habitat
Eastern box turtles prefer deciduous forests and mixed forests. (A deciduous forest have trees and shrubs that shed their leaves seasonally. In comparison, a mixed forest has evergreen trees as well, such as evergreen firs and pine trees.)
What does an Eastern Box Turtle eat?
Eastern box turtles for sale are opportunistic omnivores that will eat both animal and plant matter. Because are known to eat a lot of different things, including fruits, berries, mushrooms, flowers, grasses, etc. Mostly all box turtles can catch prey but will happily eat carrion as well. In contrast, when in the wild, they catch suitably sized animals such as snails, worms, slugs, and beetles. Because of this, when the opportunity presents itself they will happily go after bigger prey as well, e.g. birds caught in nets.
Eastern Box Turtle Lifespan
(How old can an eastern box turtle get?)
Eastern box turtles exceeding a hundred years of age have been encountered in the wild. Due to unsuitable living conditions and faulty diets, captive eastern box turtles often die much younger than this. As a result of good care, an Eastern box turtles can be very long-lived, possibly up to 100 years. Sadly, many in captivity will not survive that long (30 to 50 years is more typical; even shorter with less than ideal care).

Eastern Box Turtle Geographic Distribution

We can find Easterns all the way from southern Florida in the south to southern Main and the southern and eastern parts of the Michigan Upper Peninsula in the north.
What to feed eastern box turtles?
First of all, before you buy your new baby eastern box turtle for sale online and have him shipped, make sure you have food readily available. Secondly, take a look at the natural diet of the eastern box turtle and try to give it similar foods in captivity. Of course, one does not have to be super-strict. For instance, wild eastern box turtles are unlikely to encounter kiwi fruit since that fruit is native to another part of the world. Lastly, realize that but they will still do nicely on a diet that contains kiwi in captivity since they are generalized fruit-eaters in the wild.
Feed the right box turtle foods for sale
As a rule of thumb, give your eastern box turtle roughly 50% protein-rich food (such as worms, beetles, grasshoppers, etc), 10% dark leafy greens and 40% vegetables, fruits and mushrooms. We also feed Mazuri tortoise chow to our Eastern box turtles for sale, and they love it!
Eastern Box Turtle Temperature and Light
If kept in an outdoor pen, make sure there are both sunny and shady areas available (the turtle should be able to move from cooler to warmer areas as necessary).
Indoors, a terrarium will need a heat source as well as a UVB emitting reptile light. Provide a basking spot with temperatures of 85 to 88 F, maintaining the terrarium with a gradient down to about 75 F. The nighttime temperature should not drop below 70 F.
Eastern Box Turtles – Water
While box turtles are not aquatic, it is not unusual for them to wade into shallow water to drink and have a soak. Make sure a shallow pan of water is readily accessible (and kept clean) at all times. On hot, dry days, run a sprinkler or mist their pen for added moisture.
In contrast, other species of box turtles we offer are the 3 Toed Box turtle, Florida Box turtle, Ornate Box Turtle, and the Chinese Box Turtle.
