I see mine every now and agian on it but they usually jump off when they see me coming into the room.Yours might just feel the vibrations of you when you get close to the room they are in.

I agree with this one. Make them feel safe first. stay still in front off your tank (don\'t be too close), they will stare at you and when they feel okay (safe) they will bask in front of you and don\'t make any extreeme movement, just watch them.

My turtle is new to me and I am having the same issue. We thought something was wrong. Thanks for asking this question first, now we both know what to do!!
