I have a bare bottom on Funiculi's tank, yet there's still some sand and pebbles that he knocks off the land area... well, I've catched him more than once doing this:
He has a small pebble between his claws and is trying to lift it with them. I have never seen him trying to eat these, he just moves them around with his claws. I was going to take a video that day too, but my mom was waiting for me to go out so I couldn't. Next time I see him do this I'll take a video.
LOL! one of my turtles plays like that with plants and one particular turtle ornament i gave him-ill get a pic-but your no-headed turt looks so young! his shell is really bright,both my boys are dull and brownish-which i think means theyre old
I got Funiculi about 2 years ago, and he was the size of a quarter... so he must be close to that age... Also, reading descriptions of turtles species, I think he's a RES/YBS hybrid.. as he has a more light orange ear rather than bright red, and a lot more yellow... dunno... he's just kinda weird for a RES...
