Hatchlings hide. Period. It's their survival response in a world where lots of other creatures would like to eat them. It might last for a few years, or a life time. Some box turtles never become comfortable in an exposed position. I once had a wild-caught Eastern (from way out in the country) that was totally tame, not fearful of humans in the least and would spend almost all daylight hours out in the open. Your mileage may vary.
