Where Do Box Turtles Go in Winter?
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Box turtles, often called terrapins, live in woods or meadows across the eastern two-thirds of the United States. Two different kinds live in the U.S. You may have seen a box turtle in your backyard or crossing a highway.
 
2     Box turtles are reptiles. They are "cold-blooded." This means their body temperature changes with the outside temperature. In summer, that's no big deal. If turtles get too hot, they move into the shade. If they get too cool, they move into the sunshine.
