Quogue Wildlife Rescue: Reptiles

July 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This male eastern box turtle was taken out of the wild illegally by a member of the public. After being kept for over 10 years in their home as a pet, he was surrendered to a wildlife rehabilitation center where he was deemed non-releasable due to his habituation and reliance on humans for food. Please remember that it is illegal to take any native wildlife out of their home habitat. Eastern box turtles are a “species of special concern” due to their dwindling population, so every wild turtle must stay in the wild.
