Thermal performance curve (TPC) of box turtle turtles (n = 12) monitored in 2015. Non-linear equation was fit to the mean overall dynamic body acceleration (ODBA) values. The black line represents the best fit regression. Box turtles had a relatively constant performance from 14 to 23 °C. Performance as a function of body temperature was not thermally dependent across this range giving box turtles a wide performance breadth
