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.
