Box Turtle Legislation?

Hey Everyone,
For some reason I am now obsessed with box turtles. Anyone know where I can find legislation on keeping them? I live in NY and I can't find anything on DEC's website. Its quite aggravating...I am pretty sure I can't have easterns...but then again who knows LOL!

Box turtles listing in several states

as protected species or " sinc " listed. In my state the box turtle no matter which species is the state reptile. Therefore no commercial, no legal collecting with out permit or scientific permit. BUT you can have one legally purchased from out side of state with proper documents and or receipts. In New York state the eastern box turtle is listed as a protected species of native wildlife ! Also not to bum you out > ALL species of box turtles are listed as both prohibitive in native and non-native. The legality of having box turtles are as follows in New York state: > permits are required to posses all species of box turtles including out side of state. Again doesn't mean you can't own them but with permit and ya better have that receipt !
