Has anyone ever seen a painted turtle sleep? This little one sleeps with his head completely extended, sometimes even in water. When I see this I panic but I nudge him and he scurries away and every thing seems normal. I have been watching him to be sure every thing is okay and it seems to be. He lives with 2 florida red bellies and a yellow belly hatchling. They all seem to be very healthy. Is this type of sleeping normal?

That is how they warm themselves in the sun or if they are in a tank, by the heat lamp, my turtles do it all the time:D
