Abstract

A soft-shelled turtle, Pelochelys bibroni (Owen), caught alive from Palk Bay — a new record from the sourther part of lndian peninsula — proves beyond doubt that the species can tolerate the marine environment, as against the belief that it is purely a freshwater form. The behaviour of the animal was studied keeping it under captivity for 14 days.
