Data from a turtle trapping effort at a release site of head-started alligator snapping turtles, Macrochelys temminckii, in southwest Louisiana in 2018 (ver. 2.0, September 2021)

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This dataset contains initial data from head-started alligator snapping turtles released by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) from November 2015 to October 2016. In addition, it contains data from a five-day trapping effort at each of seven release sites by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from late June to early October 2018. Trapping was completed using hoop nets of three sizes. We recaptured eight head-started alligator snapping turtles as well as four individuals native to the creek.
