The aquatic movement patterns and home-range size of the Eastern Mud Turtle, Kinosternon subrubrum, have received little attention. We radio-tracked 5 adult females and 5 adult males during 2 yrs in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Our mean estimates of home-range size (18.6 ± 23 ha in 2008 and 16.3 ± 16.3 ha in 2009) and maximum aquatic distance traveled (815 ± 455 m in 2008 and 774 ± 331 m in 2009) suggest that K. subrubrum is highly adept at movement in aquatic environments.
