Aquatic floated-turning performance among rigid bodies animals have been studied in whirligig beetles (Fish and Nicastro, 2003), boxfish (Walker, 2000), and more recently in a freshwater turtle, Chrysemys picta

Reproductive potential, activity, and cycles in the painted turtle, Chrysemys picta
Eumeces (Plestiodon) farciatus), 3 species of amphibians (including Lithobates sphenocephalus, Litho bates catesbieanus and Notophthalmus viridescens), and 4 species of turtles (including Graptermys geographica, Chrysemys picta
, Pseudemys floridana and ApaIone spinifera).
We fared better than Koper and Brooks (1998), who reported violations of assumptions about equal catchability caused inaccurate and imprecise estimates of abundance when collecting Chrysemys picta
by hand, basking trap, hoop net and all methods combined.
Researchers documented 10 species of herpetofauna, including three species of anurans (Anaxyrus woodhousii, Pseudacris maculata, Litliobates blairi), three species of turtles (Chelydra serpentina, Chrysemys picta
, Apalone spinifera), two species of lizards (P.
