Distance moved as a function of precipitation measured by a nearby weather station. Mixed-effect model indicated precipitation and time of day as the best predictors of distance moved with a marginal r2 of only 0.008 based on the fixed effects of precipitation and time of day and a conditional r2 of 0.076. Although including the turtle ID as a random effect increased the r2, more than 90% of the data remained unexplained by the mixed-effect model. Precipitation was only recorded during 135 of the hour-intervals where movement occurred in box turtles
