I have two red-eared slider turtles, one larger than the other (Yugioh and Sakura respectively), and last night I saw Yugioh (the larger one) doing something strange. One of the things I've been doing, to help them realize that not all food comes in pellet form, is giving them treats of cooked meat, and I tried having feeder fish in the tank (that doesn't seem to be working out too well), but I digress. Last night's meat treat was a little bit of turkey breast. Now, I kept an eye on them while they were eating because when I put the turkey in the water (they won't eat from my hands and I can't risk touching them anyway) Yugioh hoarded all the meat in one spot. Just when I thought I needed to separate them so that Sakura (the little one) could get some meat as well, he ripped a piece of turkey off and held it out to her. She ate it, the whole thing, went for more from the pile, and he stopped her from eating from the pile and fed her again. While I know a lot more about turtles in general (and mine in particular) than I did when I got them in September, I've never seen them behave this way before. I tried to google the behavior--and I got nothing. Can someone please explain what is going on?
