Hey guys

well I\'ve had my turtle for about 4-5 months now and I noticed about 3 months ago that every once in a while he goes to the glass, and puts his hands along side his face then they shake as he movess them to the side (like a swimming motion) but they shake / gitter pretty severely. He only does this once in a while but it looks scary.. the water is a good temp, he basks wuite a bit and eats like a champ.. I just don\'t know why he sits against the glass sometimes and shakes his front hands..

Please tell me what this might mean

It might be his reflection..whatever it is, I don\'t think its much of a problem. I guess you just have a turtle thats on the wild side.
