Notes

This was an empty shell of a box turtle that had died recently. I found a total of three box turtle shells around a swampy area. They were all upside-down, with no apparent damage to the shells. I also saw a lot of chewed-up crayfish in this area, so I'm guessing that raccoons were the culprits.
