Fountain Rock Park & Nature Center has a live Box Turtle exhibit. The exhibit is used to teach visitors about the Box Turtle.
Box turtles can live 50 or more years. The American Box Turtle is native to North America. Box Turtles will eat about anything they can catch. They will eat worms and insects, but also eat a large amount of vegetation and some fruits.
