Diagnosis:
The semiaquatic Pond Slider is characterized by a short tail, a rigid upper and lower shell, an upper shell with a roughly jagged rear edge, large dark spots on the lower shell, and a red stripe on each side of the head behind each eye. The upper shell is brown with a pattern of black and yellowish lines. The lower shell is yellow or light brown with large dark brown or black spots. The limbs and tail are dark gray or green with yellow stripes, and the head is the same color but has a broad red stripe behind each eye plus yellow stripes above and below. Adult females grow much larger than males. Male turtles have longer claws on the front feet than females. Old adult Pond Sliders may turn progressively darker in color until they are almost completely black.
Adults are normally 125-203 mm (5-8 inches) in carapace length. The largest specimen from Kansas is a female (KU 189281) from Douglas County with a carapace length of 290 mm (11‌3⁄8 inches) and a weight of 4.2 kilograms (9 pounds, 3 ounces), collected by Rob Ladner on 23 June 1981. This is the maximum carapace length throughout the range (Powell et al., 2016).

Distribution:
The Pond Slider is a semi-aquatic turtle and found throughout much of Kansas (in all major river drainages). It is absent from the northwestern portion of the state and along the northern and western borders (except for four questionable records from Wallace County [AMNH 2670, KU 3258, and KU 3259 from 1911 and w/o specific locality and FHSM 13688 from 2007 which is mapped).
The range (and density) of the Pond Slider may be increasing due to the construction of impoundments that supply permanent sources of water. Young turtles are often picked up as pets, taken home, and then released into new areas once they get too large to make a convenient pet.
A specimen exists for Greenwood County (USNM 55543) but is only given to the county, and therefore cannot be mapped precisely. The records mapped by Collins (1993) from Chase and Marion counties, are unknown and not mapped.
Two specimens (KU 3258-9) from Wallace County (summer 1911) are given to the county only. More recently (Collins, 2007), it was rediscovered on Willow Creek lending credibility to those earlier records.

Natural History:
This turtle is found in nearly every permanent body of water within its range. Like most semiaquatic turtles, it prefers quiet water with soft mud bottoms, plentiful aquatic vegetation, and basking sites.
Pond Sliders are active from March to October at air temperatures of 50- 90°F. During winter months, they burrow into the bottom mud of lakes or ponds or in the earth along the shoreline. This turtle is active during the day and sleeps in the water at night, either floating on the surface or resting on the bottom.
Pond Sliders usually breed from March to June. Fall mating also occurs, and it is possible that this turtle breeds twice or more each season. Courtship is similar to that of the Painted Turtle, but the female is more passive. Female Sliders normally search for nesting sites during favorable weather, but if no suitable areas are located they can retain their eggs for many weeks until a proper nest is found. Each female prepares her nest during the evening in loose, damp soil near the water's edge, using her hind feet to dig from one to four inches deep. A female deposits up to 22 white eggs, which are elongate and granular. The young turtles hatch in 2- 2½ months and may emerge immediately from the nest and enter the water or stay in the nest all winter until spring. Eric M. Rundquist (pers. comm., 1989, 1990; Collins 1993) obtained females of this species from Butler, Harvey, and Sedgwick counties and recorded 22 clutches with a range of one to fifteen eggs laid; the clutches were deposited from 13 April to 19 July.
Pond Sliders are omnivorous, eating both plants and animals with equal relish. They are known to consume insects, tadpoles, fishes, snails, and crayfishes, as well as aquatic vegetation (Collins, 1993).

Occurrence Activity:
Number of Unique Obervations (=days): 259; Range: 17 Jan to 27 Dec
Remarks:
The Pond Slider was first reported by Cragin (1880), from the Osage River (presumably Bourbon County). Burt (1933) reported a specimen collected in Ottawa County that was in the Kansas State University collection (no longer extant) and collected in 1888. The earliest existing specimen (USNM 222417) was collected in Grasshopper Creek (now the Delaware River [Nemaha, Brown, Atchison, and Jefferson counties]) on 19 June 1859.
Pond Sliders occur in almost every type of permanent water in the state. They can also make significant overland movements between water bodies.
The 'red-eared' form is native to Kansas. An introduced population of the 'yellow-bellied' form (native to the southeast United States) persists in Wyandotte County Lake and isolated records (likely released pets) show up elsewhere periodically.
Pond Sliders are often quite observably abundant in ponds and lakes and are often erroneously credited with decimating local fisheries. In fact, Pond Sliders take very few live fish, though they do compete for many of the same resources.
Gibbons (1987) reported a minimum known life span of over 25 years for this turtle. Based on a captive specimen, Snider and Bowler (1992) reported a maximum longevity for this species of 37 years, nine months, and ten days.

Hypsiglena jani was not known from Kansas until Claude W. Hibbard collected three specimens on the Stevenson Ranch in north-central Clark County (above Clark State Lake) during June 1936 (Hibbard, 1937). Brumwell plotted this locality, which leads me to believe that the 1936 would have been the earliest date this manuscript could have been written.

Report on certain Kansas specimens housed in the collection at what is now Pittsburg State University. Included are several species of dubious status today, including Cryptobranchus alleganiensis from the Neosho and Spring rivers (the only specimens from those significant drainages ever documented), Ambystoma maculatum from just north of Pittsburg, Crawford County, Heterodon nasicus from Crawford County, Opheodrys vernalis from Crawford County, Sonora episcopa from Crawford County, Agkistrodon piscivorus from Cherokee County, Crotalus atrox from Crawford County, and Crotalus viridis from Crawford County. They report several significant range extensions including Kinosternon flavescens from Turkey Creek in southeast Cherokee County, Graptemys geographica from just north of Pittsburg, Crotaphytus collaris from near Columbus, Cherokee County, Sceloporus consobrinus from just north of Pittsburg, Phrynosoma cornutum from Cherokee and Crawford counties, Heterodon platirhinos from Cherokee and Crawford counties, Haldea striatula from Crawford County, Sistrurus tergeminus from Crawford County, and a 402 lb Macrochelys temminckii in Cherokee County from just east of Chetopa (Labette County). They allude to the potential for Anaxyrus fowleri to occur in southeast Kansas and for native populations of Crotalus atrox in south central Kansas (in part from the disclosure that John R. Breukelman [then of ESU] had obtained three specimens in Woods County Oklahoma, 3/4 of a mile south of the Kansas line). None of the specimens the paper was based on, exist today.

A summary of known information on the amphibian, reptile, and fish faunas of the Arkansas River above Great Bend. The report details associated field activities for procuring fish, however no new surveys for amphibians and reptiles were undertaken. Information on herps from Finney County was provided by Michael Rush (FHSU) and thus made available before the publication of his thesis (Rush, 1981). The western Arkansas River drainage had experienced little attention by herpetologists before this study, and the species accounts reflect that paucity of data. Additionally, the report omits several older records (e.g. for Anaxyrus debilisThamnophis cyrtopsis, and Lampropeltis calligaster) from the westernmost reaches of the Arkansas River drainage in Kansas.
