You can determine the age of a box turtle by counting the number of rings on its shell. The box turtles are known to gain a layer of lamina annually. However, this method can only be used for turtles that are less than 10 years. Check out http://www.ehow.com/info_10061372_tell-age-land-box-turtle.html for more ideas on how to determine their age.
