Abstract/Description

The yellow-bellied slider, Trachemys scripta, tries to avoid predators by retreating to their shells or a nearby water source. This study is to discover how that response changes according to time and disturbance, by recording the distance between an organism and a potential predator. It is hypothesized that the potential threat will be allowed closer over time.
