Tortoises translocated along a roadside corridor at Kennedy Space Center, USA, and tracked via radiotelemetry with translocation distances, expected return bearings, and results of Rayleigh tests of directional movement significance by either true homing or corridor use. CL, carapace length in centimeters (cm); tracking events, the total number of times an individual was tracked; SLTD, straight-line translocation distance in meters; expected return bearing, expected direction of travel given true homing to their original capture location; true homing, P-value indicating significance of travel in the direction of the expected return bearing; corridor use, P-value indicating significance of travel in the orientation of the corridor (inland: 270°; coastal: 90°). * indicates significance (P < 0.05).
