Caspian Pond Turtle of Khouzestan Province belongs to Geoemydidae family of pond turtles and Mauremys caspica siebenrocki subspecies. This species have seen in fresh water habitats such as main rivers in this province. In this study which was continued from winter 2010 to fall 2010, for morphometric study of Caspian pond turtle in Khouzestan province, 44, 54 and 36 samples of Caspian pond turtle collected from Dez, Karoun and Karkhe rivers respectively. Generally, 107 samples from all of the samples were female and 27 samples of them were male. The ratio of male samples to female samples in these rivers was 1 to 4. Also the samples which were captured in Summer, Fall and Spring were 63, 46 and 25 respectively. According to the results of Kolmogorov Smirnov Test, among 12 morphometric characteristics of Caspian turtle only two characteristics, CCL and CCW showed unormal distribution (P-value<0/05) and in other characteristics, normal distribution were seen.
