Ed,is the adaptation you are talking about your opinon, or is it a known fact? I have seen some Northern water turtles go off feed at the hint of cold weather in captivity in Florida as the weather warms they swim around and burn off weight but do not eat. This seems to indacate they get genetic seasonal signal built into the species and not the individual animal. Dont know please explane with a reference. VM
