i have a baby res who\'s name is Franklin - and through reading this board he has finally started eating! yea! but i was wondering is it normal for them to always climb up against the sides of the tank - like hes trying to get out? and i have a heater in the tank and the temp is at 80 but he always likes to hang onto it all the time? any suggestions? thanx!!!

Hehehe hey!! Hahaha that sounds like my turtles when I first got them. I got them places like a little house and they go in there when they are scared and then they will eventually get use to living in the tank *Goodluck* - Hien

From your post I can`t tell if your worried about him getting burned on the heater or not. If you are, get a heater cover.

His swimming against the side of the tank is common behavior. He`s probably seeing a reflection of himself and trying to get to the \"other\" turtle.
