What type of things does your turtle do?

Mine will beg for food and scratch at the corner of the glass when we don't open the window blinds.
She also gets on her ramp before we leave and put her foot up on the glass and drag it down like nooooo dont leave

They like to follow me and each other around when out of the tank. It's kinda cute and they don't do it as much as they used to (well, I don't have them out of the tank as much anyway).

I just remembered, when they were little they would like to climb on me. They would also seem to compete to see who can get the highest.

Well she definitely knows when it's feeding time. When she first came home, she was sooooo quiet and timid. Those days are over!

She splashes frantically in the morning when it's feeding time.

I swear I see her smile when I approach her tank. I think I can tell the difference, because I've also seen her frown before she had the appropriate habitat.

She's cute because she goes toward me when I approach when at first, she would head in the opposite direction whenever she saw me coming!

She's cute when I'm hand feeding her (which she fully expects) but she's splashing so frantically and snapping, she misses. So I cup her with my other hand to hold her still so she can take a bite. Awwwww.....!

She's cute because she's in the dining room and if I'm in the living room, I see her at the corner of the tank straining to get a look at me. So I go over and say hi and she just splashes and splashes.

My Sweet George. :)

I'm happy because it seems she's living a great life. She seems content. :)

My turtles do their own special cute things

Kroten would climb to my lap everytime I sit on the floor

Kurome always chases me and climbs onto my foot to be petted

Papoe is still shy but always looking at me full of curiosity

Donatello sleeps on one of those little suction cupped soap dishes I have in the tank. One day one of the suction cups came loose an it slipped into a vertical position. He still tried to sleep on it. (Sorry it's such a blurry picture, I was trying to take it before he moved.)

Sherbet will steal food from her siblings. It's mean, but also cute. Right from their mouths. She east alone most days lol. Whens she begs for food she will splash. She is very adventurous and will run around the whole house if you let her.

Raph likes to be chased. She will grab food that another turtle is interested in and swim around with it. If they stop chasing her, she usually drops the food. She also prefers veggies to meat, which I find endearing considering she's still little.

Mikey likes eating his "jello shots" on a spoon rather than on the bottom of the tank. He has bad aim when he tried to bite things. His eyes seem fine so I think he just gets excited.

Ponyo is really shy and timid and sweet but once someone gets too close to her food or you feed them a live treat like worms she turns into a tough guy and will not have any shenanigans. She loves worms. They are her favorite food and she will charge after them very quickly when I feed it to them. All other food she is very timid about eating. She just likes to kill things I guess? lol that's... kinda cute?

Oh! Sometimes I put balloons around their waist and let them walk around the house for a bit. This way we know where they are.

I have two to a tank right now. I love it when they climb on top of each other. When they were all living together I even had a pile of 3.
