"I have now an African Side-necked Turtle and his name is Butters. Butters has been with me for about 3 weeks now and at first he was very shy. After setting the tank and putting in piled rocks he dived right into the water. It took him about a week to really get comfortable with his surroundings. I added plants for him to nibble on. Def. do not want to over feed, it may seem like they're really hungry but they're turtles, in general if you keep feeding them, they won't stop eating! Now at the 3 weeks mark, Butters let my boyfriend and I both touch his head while he's in the water but not on the dry bridge! We even feed him by hand with pellets. As long as we approach him softly and not run up to the tank he won't swim behind the rocks and hide. Very curious and active turtles and I love them! Especially when he pokes his head up right up against the tank to take a breath and stares at me for a bit! Cutest ever! :)"
