My red-eared slider (male with long claws) started to tickle my other turtle (yellow-bellied slider) on the face, and this is a sign of courtship. Help! Is it possible to reproduce between their species.

(I have a trauma now. The male RES is only 4 inches log and the yellow-bellied a litte smaller.It was very creepy. And they wrere my little innocent babies!)

Oh dear...I don\'t think they will be copulating soon. :) The yellow bellied (Lex) is quite uncooperative and playing hard to get with Honu. (RES)

That\'s ok, I\'m sure they\'ll come to some kind of agreement eventually, men are known for being persistent:D

No...sorry...he is only about three inches, but he still actually does the mating dance thing. Would you say this is \"practice?\"

well, frogs mating could last three hours or up to three days so its not like I was staring at them from the time they started to the time they seperated.
