It would be really nice if we could see some N. American chelonia photos.

Oh dear, the poor little one in your hand! Was he partially run over on the road? They are such an attractive species -- really pretty shell patterns and sweet heads.
Totally agree what amazing faces and eyes! Did the cracked shell one survive??
Absolutely fine Bex,this was an old injury probably a road strike..very common to find Box Turtles on the roads in the summertime just after it's rained
So glad they cope with trauma so upsetting when human mistakes cause them harm
