Juvenile Red Eared turtles (Pseudemys scripta elegans) were continuously centrifuged for as long as 9 weeks at 5 and 6 times the Earth's gravity. On a carapace-length basis growth was 159±75% more at 5 G than under control conditions (1 G). These results were contrary to those with young mice at comparable fields in which the mice displayed a slower growth rate than their controls. The nature of the response appears to be dependent upon the feeding pattern.
