The turtles got out of the tank to "play" in their red wash basin while I cleaned their tank. It gave me an opportunity to get a close up shot of them. Maude is the larger one, Matilda has the red stripe on her shell and Maxwell is the map turtle (can't see his lovely markings in this pic). Aren't they cute? They have begun to swim to the surface and beg food from me, rather than swim away and bury their heads under the rocks as they did the first 2 weeks. It is really cute to see them swimming and peeking at me in the mornings. It is very tempting to overfeed them because they are so funny to watch.
