Puuc Hills, Yucatán and Campeche, Mexico
Much of northern Yucatán is a broad, level, limestone plain. Near the southern border with Campeche and Quintana Roo, the topography changes, and a series of low hills dominate the landscape. Here, we have initiated a series of long-term studies of two Yucatán endemic turtles: the Yucatán box turtle (Terrapene yucatana) and the Creaser's mud turtle (Cryptochelys creaseri).
