I just got a RES and the pet store said they prefer to be alone. Is this true? I think they at least need a compaion. I want to get a female friend for our turtle . Thanks Claudette

Hello,
I don\'t think that it\'s cool to keep animals all isolated. I have two turtles (RES) and they enjoy each other. They swim together & bask together, sometimes they look like they\'re \"hugging\" b/c they sleep one partially on top of the other.
If you\'re going to buy your turt a companion, make sure that they get along before leaving them alone together. I tried that once, and the bigger turtle tried to eat the smaller.
Hope this helps :D
