OK I am watching my turtles and I dont really know what they are doing, they both have their arms extended and their hands are doing this fluttering thing. Is this a mating dance bc one is way bigger then the other so i dont think its physclly possible or are they fighting? I\'m ganna sepreate them cause i am afraid one might eat the small one. Somone help me, my book dosnt say anything about this.

Your exactly right..it is a mating dance..nothing to worry about unless you don\'t want any baby turtles...
You don\'t need to seperate them but if they are both males...they may eventually become hostile towards one another...
If they are still small, keep them together unless anything physically harmful will happen to them....they won\'t seriously hurt each other the first time they become hostile..it is just a warning but keep your eyes open..
