    Comment on “Home Range and Habitat Use of Florida Box Turtles (Terrapene bauri) in an Enclosed South Florida Preserve”: I have seen in ploughshare tortoises in Madagascar that males are more actives chasing females in one season (dry) and then in the wet season, females are more active to look for a place to nest. But it seems like from your study that the case for Florida box turtles is not the same as what we have seen. Do you know their mating and nesting period and have you already compared your data on that?
    Thank you,
