Raphael the Red Eared Slider: Not As Stupid As Everybody Says

My RES turtle Raphael isn't very clever, but he gets there in the end.

It's taken him a few days to catch on, but this afternoon he finally realized that a soft & comfortable seat cushion lying on the balcony floor isn't just an annoying obstacle that you have to clamber over when you're walking around ...

... it's also a great place to bask!

He does love basking in the sun, when he just settles down to doing it ... there's the rub.

He's so pretty!! :-)

FYI: that white stain on the floor is some kind of paint stain and it doesn't wash off. Trust me, it doesn't. ;-) I don't know where it came from, it was already there when I moved in.
