These turtles are omnivorous meaning they eat plant material and animals, such as insects, worms, cacti and succulents, even small mice with their favorite food being- dung beetles! They also burrow, tilling the land and providing quality soil and nutrients to many different types of plant species; this helps benefit other wildlife as well. Box turtles also have their challenges, like many other species. We all know that turtles are rather slow in their movements and many turtles have perished on roads trying to cross in search of a mate, food, or new home. Unfortunately poaching is another threat. Box turtles are the most trafficked animals in the world. They are often grabbed out of the wild, even in Nebraska, and sold overseas as exotic pets. However, with the Ornate Box Turtle as our new state symbol and now featured on license plates, this hopefully will bring appreciation and awareness to this extraordinary reptile. To show your support for wildlife like the Ornate Box Turtle and to help fund conservation efforts, consider purchasing a Nebraska Wildlife Conservation Fund license plate from your nearby state DMV or order online at dmv.nebraska.gov/ services. 2022-131436-TR-1/05/2023 tible tion and Front left-pocket-print of shirt Back of shirt shown Continued from page 7
