Marshmallow was found in the spring of 2015, but not soon enough to be included in the study. DSC_0079 DSC_0081

Marshmallow is one of the tiniest turtles, although it was found before the hatchlings from the fall of 2015. We aren’t exactly sure if it hatched early in 2015, or spent a winter out in the cold after hatching in 2014.  It was found too late to check its microsatellites for the first round, but we hope to have new data in 2016. This winter, it is being kept warm.
