Turtles often are shy and move away or perhaps tolerate me briefly. I seem to find one consistent exception. When they are feeding on sponge, they ignore me when they are eating. Once finished, they are nearly always as friendly as a puppy. Sometimes they follow me and I stop and rub their neck, fins, and generally have an amazing time. Seen it in both the pacific and carib. on numerous occasions.
Anyone else have this happen to them?
