also.. if it\'s trying to bite you while your hand is in the water, most likely your hand smells like food.

Does it hurt when they bite? Just wondering because I have 2 RES and 2 little kids.

What size are your turtles, When they are big they can draw blood and even take off skin chunks, They have very sharp beaks, i wouldnt worry about it too much when they are little. How often does the turtle bite?? If the kids hold it just make sure the turtle cant reach around and bite them.
