    My baby painted turtle, only about an inch and a half, keeps trying to bite me. She is a female, and quite aggressive toward me, this may be natural, she has been getting better, but does anyone have any ideas as to what i can do to reduce her aggression towards me?

    You’re lucky that you have her from a young age. Just keep playing with her and she will become more friendly. Turtles aren’t ever going to be as domesticated as cats or dogs. Try to keep your fingers away from their head as they will see it as a threat and that’s why they bite. Hope this helps. P.S mine are always biting so don’t worry about it
