    Western Pond Turtle (Actinemys marmorata) About the Species. Western pond turtles range from Washington’s Puget Sound to the northern reaches of the Baja California peninsula on America's West Coast. Turtle hatchlings leave the nest when they are about mm long, leaving them prone to predation by invasive bullfrogs. Other threats to the Western Pond Turtle include disease and non-native species such as large mouthed bass, bullfrog, and the red-eared slider. They are also vulnerable to climate change, as the gender of offspring is determined by the incubation temperatures of the eggs (a trait found in many other turtles and some other reptiles).

    Nearly 50 Western pond turtles are being released this week as part of a conservation effort that has raised the population of the state-endangered species from to 1, in the past two decades.   As they trapped, they also took body mass and length measurements of western pond turtles and looked at any habitat changes across the arboretum. The team found that with the removal of the invasive species, the western pond turtles were getting much bigger, gaining around 40 grams on average, around a % increase in their body weight.
