We have a couple of species of box turtle living here in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Both are exceedingly rare and I don’t come across them often in the field. That is part of what makes this observation so interesting. Here I have found not one, but two Three-toed Box Turtle skeletons side by side. Its hard to imagine how this situation came to pass, but somehow these two turtles reached the end of their road beneath the branches of the very same tree.
