Abstract 1. 1. The fatty acids of depot fats of three species of Atlantic marine turtles and six species of North American fresh-water turtles have been determined. 2. 2. Dermochelys coriacea was exceptional in having 9·5% lauric acid, possibly replacing palmitic acid. 3. 3. Trans-6-hexadecenoic acid was found only in the marine species. 4. 4. Dermatemys mawi could be differentiated from the other fresh-water species by details of fatty acids indicative of a herbivorous diet.
