Abstract

This paper deals with the vascularization of the kidney in Chrysemys marginata belli (Gray) and Chelydra serpentina. The arrangement of the vessels in the kidney of the painted turtle produces a true renal portal system while that in the kidney of the snapping turtle permits a considerable amount of blood to shunt around the capillaries of the kidney.
