The pictures in this book were magnificent but I found the information to be quite contradictory from every book I have recently read concerning box turtles. Also, it had a bunch of "we don't know" this or that about the box turtle because they have not been "studied" in depth enough. So much so that it made me wonder if the box turtle has ever been studied.

While it's not a bad book, this is one that I wouldn't start with if you are interested in learning about box turtles.
