Recently I\'ve seen a funny move of one of my RES. She stretches her front legs straight in front of the other one and started rattling her claws against the other one\'s face. Of course, the other one was annoyed :) but she kept doing it. Was it some kind of game, or something else?

I am pretty sure that the turtle that you call she is a he and what he is doing is showing off for the other. I hear it is some kind of mating. I dont know that much about it just that they do it for mating purposes. Hope that helps!

mating dance would be my guess, too. she does look like a he...with long front claws, thicker and longer tail. but he\'s a little bigger than the other one, which might be a she. anyway, thanx for the reply. however, how old would RES start thinking about sex..? it seems too early for them. i got them when they were babies about a year ago. now they are about 4 inches big.
