hanging around in the cave to much

Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

They are still scared of you. Dont worry, it will get better and once they feel more secure they will not run all the time. Mine is fine in the water, but when it is basking sometimes it will bolt off the island if we move suddenly or walk by, but not all the time. They feel more comfortable in the water. It is good for them to have a place to go to feel safe so it doesnt stress them too much. It isnt good to stress them and being babies, their behavior is normal.
