There are, if I'm not mistaken, several things in both the plant and animal kingdom that are naturally phosphorescent. Fireflies, for example, and some algae and mosses, I think. It may be these guys are becoming coated with something quite natural, so cleaning them up and releasing them elsewhere could prove to be a bad idea. Sounds like something that could be brought to the attention of a biology teacher, perhaps, who might be better equipped to determine the cause. I recently assisted a slider across a road, and he/she was rather slime covered, so it my not be the turtle itself, but something on it. Which brings me to another point: where are you that you see box turtles spending so much time in water?

:There have been sighting of glow in the dark turtles. Seemingly box turtles in a specific pond in my area. My boyfriend even saw one of them himself and a certain psychotic girl kept one and surely by now it is dead. But we have been looking for the name of such a turtle if it is even believe to exist. Is this some rare thing? There are many that glow in the dark in this pond. Is it some new strain? Or....RADIATED TORTOISES! :P
