Need advice on Eastern box turtle

4 years ago
last modified: 4 years ago

The turtle has been in my pond for three days. Its carapace is about 5 inches long. The pond is very shallow and filled with rocks.

I don't know if the turtle fell in and couldn't get out, or if he chooses to be there. He swims around.

The night temp will be in the mid 60s.

I placed a flat rock in the pool and put him on it, but he went back in the water. He's not a pet.

Should I assume he can climb rocks?

Thanks for any help.
