  1. 1.0 1.1 While most of the Alpha and Beta parts can be collected in one run, there's one of each that will be at exit path after the crossroad with Base on the left and Alpha Part/Beta Part on the right.
  2. 5 of these Glow Barks are found in different path endings. Thus it's impossible to grab all the Glow Barks in a single run in Turtle Woods.
