Lipid composition of eggs and hatchlings was studied in painted, snapping and Blanding's turtles from western Nebraska. The average total lipid proportions of the egg yolk, post-embryonic yolk and hatchling soma dry masses were high in painted turtles (29.80%, 42.16% and 14.18%, respectively) relative to snapping and Blanding's turtles (egg yolk < 14%, postembryonic yolk < 17%, hatchling soma < 2%). The proportion of total egg yolk lipid used during development varied among species (painted… CONTINUE READING
