Out There

Kansas is home to two species of box turtles, land-dwelling little critters that most of us have come to be very fond of. The Three-toed box turtle of the eastern third of Kansas is a plain brownishgreen turtle, often with bright orange or yellow on the neck and legs. And statewide we have the Ornate box turtle, a dark shelled turtle with a bright array of radiating yellow stripes. Ornate's occur in every county in Kansas and were named the State Reptile thanks to a campaign made by Caldwell sixth graders.
