During our monitoring survey of amphibians and Emys orbicularis in Lake Suluklu (Western Anatolia, Turkey), we observed four overwintered hatchlings of European pond turtle on May 4 and 10, 2010. The average straight-line maximum carapace length of the neonates captured was 26.48 mm and their average weight was 4.18 g. This observation is the second record for the Turkish population of Emys orbicularis.
