better be careful , florida box turtles are an endangerd species and you can get in big trouble with out the right paper work.

Precisely why I'm looking for one. Certain species have to be captive bred if they are to survive. They are rapidly disappearing in the wild. I already have a male that I obtained purely by accident - he was being sold in a local petshop as an ornate! I simply want a mate for him as he is trying to cross-breed with my easterns. I want to keep the species pure and see that is does not become extinct like so many before it. It is a shame to see so many beautiful animals no longer around because of people when there are still some people who want to do something to keep their species going. I belong to a local Turtle & Tortoise Society and have permits to keep many endangered species. The hard part is obtaining them.

Strangely enough, the few responses I've had have been from the weirdest places. No one in FL will even touch the subject. I can't blame them. I wouldn't ship out a California Desert Tortoise to anyone, although I have a permit to keep them. They are a perfect example. Thanks to captive breeding, there are way more of them in captivity than there are in the wild now. Just shows you that it works wonders. They have to be placed in the right hands though. Most box turtles die within months of entering the pet trade, which is very sad. I've had mine for over 20 years. I've had my male about 3 years, which shows me they do well here. I waited to be sure of that before looking to get him a mate. I'm all out for their best interest. He's got a great personality, a little more aggressive than the 3-toes and easterns, and I just don't want to see them disappear. They are beautiful and personable, and they need our help to survive. Too many people would rather see parking lots and high rise buildings than natural habitat. It's very sad.

thats great, i wasnt talking about now I only have three my self. maybe in a year or two . when we both get a breeding project going.

I was finally able to get ahold of a female, and they have been verrry busy. Hoping for some babies next year. Been looking for several years now. Hopefully things are finally looking up. It will be a few years before those yearlings produce. Hopefully there are more females than males. Still looking for more adult females to add to my group though. Don't want brothers and sisters getting together
