Dates of emergence from hibernation, and the estimated ambient subsurface temperatures in the hibernacula, were used to investigate the effects of those temperatures on the emergence from hibernation of the box turtles, Terrapene carolina triunguis and T. o. ornata. In the spring, near St. Louis, Missouri, box turtles move from their hibernacula toward the surface of the ground as they follow a minimum ambient temperature of ca. 7 C. They emerge after 5 consecutive days of subsurface (10-20 cm… Expand
