When i put my hand into my male RES's storage container trying to pat him, he will sniff my fingers, then swim away.
But sometimes, he will sniff n use his front legs n place on my hand and try to climb out of his storage container(treat my hand as a stepping stone). :lol:

What a strange behaviour. Like to sniff first b4 doing anything.
Does anyone know y he behave like this?
Does yr pet turtle behave like this? :?:

Turtles identify their food by smell. You probably don't smell like what yours eats.
I usually hand-feed my RES. If I have just washed my hands and they smell of soap, she won't take the food. She takes one sniff and pulls her head in.

Yup, talk about biting the hand that feeds you, literally!

My guys won't feed from my hand, not yet anyway.

21 eh? I thought you were older than that Pyramid Head!
