I thought painted and boxed were the same... Oh well...
Painted turtle is a species of water turtle. A turtle is primarily water based. The term box turtle is a common term used to describe a variety of terrapins that splits their time between dry ground and marshy areas, but terrains generally avoids water where it would have to swim like a turtle. A tortoise is land based and avoids water.
