Gorgeous turtle! Good save!

How many toes are on his back feet? (looks more Eastern than 3toed to me)

LilTurtSquirt wrote:Burt's most likely a male 3 toed. He's been IDed by several people who are very knowledgeable in working with box turtles over several years. He only has 3 toes. A couple people said he may possibly be a eastern/3-toed mix, but definitely mostly 3-toed.

He certainly looks like he has some eastern in him.

I have an eastern/3toed as well but his coloring is really quite dull. What a pretty boy you have there!
