    Den Ausdruck to turn through 180° habe ich aus einem Artikel von 1939. Ich bin mir nicht sicher ob er heute noch geläufig ist.
    Alternativ dazu könnte ich mir etwas mit "to turn around ??? 180°" vorstellen.

    to turn 180°

    -

    sich um 180° drehen



    Context/ examples
    He turned 180° to face the other side.

    Without the 'through' (although that may be AE?)

    "To make a 180° turn works" well as well, i.e. the animal frequently (regularly?) made a 180° turn to face the other way.
