Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Terrapene nelsoni klauberi
Northern Spotted Box Turtle

Sonora, Mexico
August 21, 2011

I've rescued many box turtles off the road in my time, but this one may be the best one of all.  I did not expect to see a T. nelsoni on my trip to Mexico, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this turtle scooting across the road one morning.
