    Partial tail regeneration in a turtle is described grossly and radiographically. Turtles do not have autotomous tails and have not been described to regenerate lost tails, but this specimen regenerated a partial tail following presumed trauma. The regenerated tail had dense segmented tissues, possibly cartilaginous.
