Hatchling Glyptemys insculpta did not travel to water directly upon emergence from their nests but remained in agricultural fields for several days to weeks, during which time they fed and grew. Hatchlings were less active and occupied sites with significantly lower air and substrate temperatures than adult turtles. A management scheme to delay agricultural harvesting until turtles have entered aquatic habitats for hibernation is advised.
