    Hi Laura,

    very interesting, do you have any idea about how many Mauremys sinensis could inhabit your wetland? Thanks

      Hi Cesar,
      thank you for your comment. Unfortunately I can’t estimate the number of individuals that are in my study area. Four years ago a sub-adult female of Mauremys sinensins has been found and last year an adult male and the hatchling reported in the poster have been captured. These are the only records.

      Yes Cesar,
      the discovery at different times and in different points of the Natural Reserve both of the two adults and of the newborn make us think of a not exceptional presence. Surely today the female that has been laid and the other chicks probably hatched are still present…

        Thanks both for the replay, some species seem difficult to detect and/or capture, at least in mu experience in Nw Spain.
