    Default Turtles getting on top of each other...

    So, I have a 20 gal Tank with 2 baby turtles. I named the big one Hercules ,and the little one is named Lucy ( short for Lucifer ) because she is seriously mean lol. Anyways, I don't know the sex of the turtles so I took a chance and named them gender specific names anyways. Lucy was put into the tank about 2 weeks after Hercules. Last night I looked over at the tank to see Hercules laying on top of Lucy. I went to the tank and was tapping on the glass to get him off ( because she is literally a baby ) and after he got off I sat back down.

    So as soon as I sat down I look over and see Lucy on him this time, which I then took a photo of. At first I was relieved to because it meant Hercules was a male and Lucy was a female but now I'm not sure since they do it to each other. Hercules also does it when they are swimming in the water. Any ideas? Lol

    Haha I never even thought of that.😂😂...mainly because Hercules tries to do it in the water. I've been meaning to get another basking rock and bulb though.

    Welcome to the AC.

    I don't keep turtles, so no clue what they are doing, but those are some great pics of a neat little tank.

    Thanks guys! Riversgirl, I've had Hercules since March 28th. Lucy was found and put in about 2 weeks ago. They were both found outside near a pond. Hercules was in the mouth of a dog being thrown around! I never thought about having turtles as pets but I'm glad I found them.
