Our turtles do the darndest things, right? Ever wonder why your turtle is flicking his webbed feet at another turtle or object? It’s a mating ritual! Check out this video to see a clear example of the behavior:
Pretty cool, huh? Seeing any other behaviors with your turtle that you don’t know what they are?
Just saw a short, interesting video where this woman (girl?) shows how she trained her turtle to do stuff:
I wish I had seen this when my turtles were alive. I think I would have pulled them out of the tank more often!
Has anyone else trained their turtle in a similar way?
Also, sadly, I believe this will be my last Video Monday post for a while. Seems I have exhausted quite a bit of my video resources and now I’m getting a bunch of repeat film. Hopefully I can bring the column back this summer with new vids.
Don’t fret! I have plans for a new column to take its place next week! Make sure to check back!
I can never pass up a hatching video. Seeing all those beautiful little baby turtles fight there way up and out of their nests to the water never ceases to amaze me. This particular video is about 7 minutes long, but quite fun to watch.
I love seeing turtle videos taken by divers. This one is particularly happy, just as the title states. The music selected for the video is pretty happy, too. It’s worth the two minutes of your time to watch.
This is an interesting video on prehistoric giant sea turtles in the area of New York with water overlays of current New York.
Today you get not one, but two excellent turtle-related videos!
