Box turtles are NOT tortoises even though older box turtles like Houdini live almost entirely on land. Young Box Turtles have soft shells until the age of 7 years, the smaller softer shells make them excellent swimmers and they spend most of their days in the water. After 7 they tend to spend more time basking in the sun than in the water.
