... are responsible for allometric changes in bite force and durophagy, we developed and experimentally tested a static model of bite-force generation throughout development in the durophagous turtle Sternotherus minor . Moreover, we quantified the fracture properties of snails found in the diet to evaluate...

... in chemoreflex sensitivity. Turtles were exposed to natural environmental conditions over a one year period. In each season, oxygen consumption, ventilation and breathing pattern were measured continuously for 24 h while turtles were breathing air and for 24 h while they were breathing a hypoxic–hypercapnic gas...

...Kirk Miller; Gary C. Packard; Mary J. Packard ABSTRACT Locomotor performance of hatchling snapping turtles (Chelydra serpentina) was assessed while turtles were running on land and swimming in water. Hatchlings from eggs incubated on a relatively wet substrate were faster than hatchlings from eggs...
