I found this turtle sprinting accross my driveway today. He is about 1.5 inches long. I am sure he just hatched. I am pretty sure what type of turtle it is but thought it might be fun to see what everybody thinks

My son and I catch up to 3 or 4 box turtles a year and put a mark on the shell to identify it. I have read were box turtle habitat is very limited so I must have just the right type of habitat for them to live. One thing that I did not know was that Box turtles will eat meat. We discovered this fact last year when we found a box turtle eating a dead gound hog.
