The eastern box turtle, scientifically named Terrapene Carolina Carolina, is known for having patterned yellow, orange, or red streaks. These turtles are also known for their strong homing instincts and their direction. If you rescue one crossing a road, take it to the side in the direction is was going. It knows where it wants to go! Visit the Museum of Coastal Carolina January 21 at 11 AM for this exciting program!
