Is it true that when the little RES turtles grow to adult size they are more aggressive? Common sense dictates one pretty much needs to be careful when hand-feeding them but other than this does their temperment(sp?) stay essentially the same as when they are young? Thanks for anyones\' reply!

RES are likely to get aggressive if they are too large for the space they\'re in. They also have reputations for being more high-strung than some other species (cooters, for example). That said, however, much depends on the personality of the individual turtle (just like people) and the care the turtle is being/has been given.
