Use these tips to make sure your pet stays happy and healthy! Box turtles have a unique way of communicating with each other through their bodies; when one feels threatened or cornered, the turtle may puff out its neck in an attempt to look bigger than it actually is so predators won’t see it as prey. This behavior sometimes extends towards humans who handle them as well- instead of panicking like we would expect animals in this situation might do, box turtles often hold still then try to behind whatever body parts they’re able to get into the best defensive position. This is especially true if they’re not well-socialized with human handlers and are still naturally a bit shy around people, but even turtles that have had positive experiences may act this way in times of distress.
