Turtles M15 through M19 (all males) are new for 2011.
Turtle M17 is a transient that traveled and hibernated far from this study site. Here is the page dedicated to M17
Winter 2011-2012 was extremely mild, with very little precipitation and no winter snow pack. This was the 3rd warmest winter on record for this region and March was the warmest on record. Each turtle was carrying an iButton temperature logger recording soil temperatures every 4 hours. Air temperature loggers were placed near each hibernation site.
