Yes, she does love to have her bellied rubbed and her shell scratched lol. I noticed her rubbing shell on things so I figured I would try rubbing it for her, she loved it! I imagine her shell itches as our skin does when we have a scratch that is healing. I have raised here for a about a year and a half now, she was the size of a nickel when I rescued her. I never thought a turtle could have so much personality and energy. She will follow my finger back and forth along the glass like a dog chasing a stick. Not to mention she has eaten just about any table scrap I give her. She ate kielbasa for the first time the other night haha.
Back on track, your black tigers look amazing. I just got some oebt yesterday. Hoping I can keep them alive.
