These are the regulations regarding
Eastern Box Turtles
in New Jersey:

I called The New Jersey Department Of Fish & Wildlife (609-292 9591). I talked to a girl named Monica Miranda, very helpful. She told me the following:
Collection and possession of any reptile that was born in the wild within the state of New Jersey is strictly forbidden. However, possession of an Eastern Box Turtle (or probably any other USA native turtle or reptile) that was legally purchased outside the state of New Jersey is allowed as long as you have an "Exotic And Non-Game Wildlife Species Possession Permit", commonly know as a "Hobby Permit", and some sort of receipt proving where the animal came from. With a hobby permit you may posses Eastern Box Turtles and you may breed and sell for nonprofit purposes, I guess this means you set a price that covers your cost of breeding and raising. In order to breed for profit you need a higher level permit of which I can't remember the name of - I just remember that the hobby permit is $10 and the higher level permit is $100. Both permits only allow you to sell to persons outside the state of New Jersey. You can give them away to friends and relatives as pets within the state. You can call that number and they can explain in more detail, and send you an application. The application requires you to describe in detail why, where and how you intend to keep and maintain your turtles. You also need to supply the name of a local vet that you will be able to use just in case. You also have to list what types of food you intend to feed your turtle.
