Ten soft-shelled turtles were heated and cooled in air and water (15, 35, 15 C). In water, all animals heated faster than they cooled. In still air, seven of nine animals tested cooled faster than they heated. Heart rates during warming exceeded heart rates during cooling at the same body temperature in air and water. Thermal time constants (τ) were calculated in minutes, and regression formulas (with mass in kg) in water were τw = 8.51 M0.54 and τc = 16.520.61 for warming and cooling… Expand
