, : Ecology of Acanthochelys macrocephala in Paraguay Ecologie de la Platemyde a grosse tete Acanthochelys macrocephala au Paraguay. Manouria. Decembre; 933: 26-32

A population of Acanthochelys macrocephala located in the Paraguayan Chaco (21deg. 35.64 minute S / 59deg. 53.74 minute W) was monitored during three field missions (2002, 2004 and 2006). Thirty specimens were caught, measured and photographed. Within the overall number of marked individuals, 3 recaptures were made. Ecological data was collected. Air temperature was recorded during 18 months and extremes of 2,3deg. C and 40,2deg. C were noted. A compilation of the current distribution data on the species in Paraguay is presented.
