Laboratory populations of female Clemmys insculpta were subjected to different conditions of light at two environmental temperatures to assess their influence on fat utilization, as well as on the reproductive condition of the species. Both light and temperature affected the rate of fat utilization in muscle, but not in the liver. However, a variation did occur in the fat content in all three tissues of animals exposed to different light and temperature conditions. A positive correlation existed between ovarian fat content and maturation of the ova.
