Yedlin is a large adult female, and might be one of the courtyard’s original turtles. She is also one of only five adult females that we about so far. Her data in the table above show that she has lost weight this year, which means she might’ve laid eggs, and if she has been in the Riverside courtyard for a long time, then she is probably the mother of at least some of the younger turtles. Please feel free to compare the microsatellites of any possible offspring with Yedlin. Oh, and if you aren’t sure what microsatellites are, click here.
