Spring Break 2023: Terrapene carolina bauri

Terrapene carolina bauri, the Florida box turtle;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

Before I could really get into the thick of Everglades National Park, I came across this well-weathered Florida box turtle crossing the road. This old box turtle has clearly seen some action in its time, and I hope in the future it avoids the roads a little more assertively.
