Information needed on Clemmys marmorata. As this information is scarce and mostly in gray lit, I would appreciate any help in finding information or papers related to this subject. If you can help please do so by sending the info to firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail to Jon St. Onge, 202 Cooper Rd., Santa Barbara, CA 93109, USA
Request for information on indoor turtle and tortoise enclosures for possible publication. My book “Housing Your Turtles and Tortoises Outdoors” (illustrated guide to outside enclosures from Alaska to Florida, 122 pages, 17 in full color, many black and white illustrations, ISBN 1-888089-49-0 $39.00) is now available through Green Nature Books at http://www.greennaturebooks.com. I want to thank everyone who contributed information, though not every contributor’s data could be included.
I am now working on a book on indoor enclosures for turtles and tortoises. If you would like to contribute information, your help would be greatly appreciated. I need data and photos of the finished pens, any pictures of its construction (if available), a description of the design, dimensions, types of turtles/tortoises housed, and any other relevant information. Please indicate where you live, if the animals are housed outside seasonally, and any notes on how you acclimate your animals when changing locations from inside to outside. I would also need permission to use your information. Though, I can not offer financial compensation, you will be credited for your contributions. I am hoping that this project will result in a publication that will be valuable to others keeping chelonians outdoors.
Please do not submit information on outdoor enclosures. However, if you keep your specimens in greenhouses, or inside “sheds,” for all or part of a year, these setups may be used in a separate chapter (section) of the book. Due to space limitations, I cannot promise every picture or contribution will be used in its entirety (or even be appropriate to include at all), but I want to make this project as comprehensive as possible. I also reserve the right to edit material to best fit the text.
If interested, please contact me, Wayne Labenda, at E-mail: email@example.com. Thanks again for your help!
