Chrysemys picta Mercury (Hg) is one of the most common heavy metals in aquatic systems in the world. I measured Total Hg concentrations from blood and scutes of free-ranging painted turtles of Upper Rideau Lake in the Rideau Canal, Ontario, Canada. I conclude that Hg concentrations found in painted turtles are probably not high enough to induce immunosuppression and affect parasite prevalence.
