Abstract

Capture–mark–recapture and radiotelemetry was used in a population of the Mexican mud turtle (Kinosternon integrum) in the Pátzcuaro Basin. Calculated population size was 60 individuals. Sex ratio was skewed to females (1:4.75). Home range of the tracked females ranged from 0.08 to 2.7 ha and indicates a high fidelity with their aquatic and terrestrial microhabitats.
