:I agree with Ed. There have been reports of wild ornate box turtles in Louisiana, where there are many trees and no plains. The humidity here is also high.

Sure enough. I'm not disputing that. My dispute pertains to making a blanket generalization which is obviously flawed. It's like saying "bearded dragons come from the desert, so they should be raised on sand." True, SOME bearded dragons are found in the desertic areas of Australia, but many are not (their range covers a variety of habitat). Similarly, the majority of T. ornata's range is in the grasslands and semiarid areas of the US.
