Burst swimming of alligators alligator mississippiensis and the effect of temperature


Burst swimming of alligators alligator mississippiensis and the effect of temperature



Journal of Herpetology 19(4): 450-458



ISSN/ISBN: 0022-1511

The swimming speed of alligators, like the locomotory speeds of many ectotherms, is significantly affected by temperature. However, temperature also affects alligators' swimming behavior. The effect of temperature on swimming speed appears to be partly the result of direct effects of temperature on muscle performance and effects of temperature on swimming behavior.
