I\'m a new RES owner and I have a question...Is it okay to handle the turtle cuz I like to take it out and play with it? I know some turtles carry Salmonella so I wash my hands everytime I finish with him.

We handle our turtles near their feeding time. My husband actually likes to stroke their heads as their snapping up their pellets and veggies. I don\'t see why you can\'t handle them. I\'d just make sure not to overdo it. Have fun!
