Are ornate box turtles considered aquatic turtles?
No ornate box turtles are not aquatic turtles. They are usually found in grasslands
The only box turtles indigenous to Kansas are the Ornate box turtle and the Three toed box turtle. They both grow to an adult shell length of 6 inches. The biggest box turtles are Gulf Coast box turtles (not in Kansas) and they can grow to 8 inches or more in length. To answer your question, the state they are in has no affect on how big they grow so if you put a gulf…
Yes. Interbreeding between different subspecies is quite possible, such as red-eared sliders and yellow-bellied sliders, or Eastern box turtles and Ornate box turtles. Different species within the same genera is also possible, but the offspring are usually infertile. In very rare circumstances, two animals from different genera can interbreed, but they usually share a close evolutionary history.
