Yes, all of mine are desert ornate box turtles. I live in NM and all of my turtles are local. I have 9 adults, a 6 year old, a 3 year old, and two 1 year olds. I HAD three 2 year olds, but a raccoon killed all three of them last summer.

Yes, mine breed all spring and summer long but so far I have only seen hatchlings in the spring.....usually late March into April.
