A paper on the personalities of two species of South American Tortoises, Redfoot and Yellowfoot Tortoises. I found it interesting and would love to see the testing repeated across other species insofar as it would be reproducible.


I was able to access the paper with the permission of the authors, so feel that sharing a link is in keeping with their wishes to disseminate the information.

That's cause you're old like me.....get #3.0s, they will get you there............in the meantime hold down your CTRL button on the left side of the keyboard while rolling your mouse button upwards....it will make it big, just don't forget to resize it to 100% when you are done...OR EVERYTHING will be big!


The study is going to take another read.....an awful lot of variables so I want to see how they grouped and weighted them since the results relay on that.

Very good....and J, thanks for posting

Anecdotal evidence suggests that red-eared sliders have individual personalities observed by their owners.
Some are more predatory than others, for example.

My Redfoot definitely act differently from one to another.
Especially the males.
They always surprise me
