All stages experience torpor, and torpor is implemented by letting f switch backwards and forwards from f_zoo to 0 (ref: Arna2018)
Torpor occurs approximately late-December until mid-May every year (zoo popn) (ref: Arna2018)
Mating occurs after torpor in the pond, approximately July-August (zoo popn) (ref: Arna2018)
Egg laying occurs before torpor, approximately November-December (ref: Arna2018)
Torpor seems required for reproduction (ref: Kuch2017)
Average mass loss over torpor period is 7.9
Some individuals occasionally undergo a half-torpor season due to being used in the public exhibit pond (ref: Arna2018)
All coupling/mating, entry into torpor, and exit from torpor is artificially imposed by staff at Perth Zoo. Females may have been capable of becoming gravid ealier if given opportunity to mate prior. (ref: Arna2018)
