Everyone, meet Harley – my Diamondback Terrapin. I have had him since he was a hatchling and he is most definitely the friendliest turtle on the planet! He is always coming up to see me, and if you put your hand in the water, he will literally swim into your hand. Unbelievable. That’s a trick I taught him when I would feed him in a separate bowl. If you ever have trouble with your turtle eating, that’s a good method to teach him to eat at certain times and to focus on the food. It also keeps the water cleaner!
I took this picture because Harley loves to bask all day, and it’s funny because he always has a toe dipped in the water while he basks. Animals are not all that different than people sometimes! I love this turtle and he is hilarious, so you will be seeing many more posts featuring Harley.
Have a great day!
