actually it\'s not the best idea to handle turtles, it is always better to just sit back and watch them. Handling can lead to stress problems. After awhile your turtles will get used to you and swim up to you when they see or hear you coming. When they see you they automatically think one thing (FOOD). It just takes some time.

If you don\'t handle them, you will have turtles that go crazy when picked up. Cecil & Fazsha don\'t mind being picked up at all because they have been handled. Joe however, acts like a fool - she spent her first 2 years upstairs away from people & was never picked up. I say, pick them up.
