Remember box turtle with camel on shell? Thought I found him again!

Here he is at Cora’s, on Fenwick Road, on 6/24/17, 1/2 mile from prior sighting on 6/6.

So exciting to be able to recognize a box turtle!! Feeling like a very proud naturalist, I dug up the prior photos from 6/6 to show you and verify my sighting.

Here he was 6/6/17 at Greg’s, on Fenwick Road. OMG! It’s not the same turtle! How could there be 2 turtles in the world with camel patterns in same location on shell? They both have camels but the 6/24 turtle has a sun over the camel!

What else am I missing? Do all box turtles look alike?! Not according to a friend who reported finding a box turtle with an eagle pattern.
