When I was a kid, I had several box turtles as pets, usually they were temporary pets as we returned them to the wild [well the woods in the park down the street from my house]. Do people see box turtles anymore? I do think they are diminishing in numbers. I have an interest in box turtles and if I did not live in an apartment and had a yard, I would get a box turtle garden though I would have to find out how they winter them. For now, my interests are in conservation groups regarding them and seeing the ones at the local nature center.
