I don't know how many days its been since I could walk on the tank dam and look for the turtles. The last two times it was too cold for them to come out. I haven't been able to prove my theory that our turtles don't completely hibernate here in south Texas. Its been a very long time since I could sit on the side of the tank and try to pet a turtle or feed it out of my hand. I am wondering how their memory is. Will they remember that I bring food, will they still come out of the water? Will I have to train them all over again? Seems they would be lonely down in the bottom of that muddy tank. Surely they must be thinking of me. I wish!
