Abstract

This investigation summarizes an attempt to obtain conclusive evidence as to food habits of one of our very common turtles, Chrysemys marginata bellii (Gray). In the literature of the food habits of turtles little data is recorded in regard to Chrysemys marginata bellii, although there is much scattered information concerning other species of this genus. The food habits of many of our turtles on the other hand have been briefly reveiwed by Ditmars (1), Babcock (2), Morgan (3), Ruthven (4), and Surface (5). Surface has studied the food habits of several species of turtles and his data seem to be the most complete. Pope (6) has recently reviewed most of the available data on food and food habits of turtles in his interesting popular treatise: "Turtles of the United States and Canada."
