yes, they are wild turtles, but the do love an afternoon snack. Most days I manage to share. for now they seem to be keeping this part of the pond occupied, but due to the dam break, which is worse this year, the are will dry up, but for now snack time!! I think they hear me talking to the chickens, so they start gathering, one day this week one was all the way up on the dam.
I get a kick out of watching them for sure. they will come barreling up the bank, although too much movement scares them, and some end up flipping over and over rolling back down when they get in a really big hurry to get back to the water.
