:Yes, this would be a good habitat as long as it isn't wet all of the time. Humidity is good for box turtles. They live in the forests in the wild, near water.

That's an immense generalization! It may be applicable for most of the carolina complex, but definitely not for the ornata turtles. :) Here's a picture of typical Nebraska ornata habitat. Not a tree in sight!

I wouldn't put a box turtle into the described terrarium unless you were dissatisfied with the setup and wanted to undertake extensive remodeling! :)
