Turtle Line Up

I first noticed this behavior in Florida when I would see turtles near alligators. I thought it was some sort of turtle defense system. But these turtles were hanging out at Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden without a predator in sight. Maybe it is just a form of social communication. I don’t think there was any hanky panky going on.

  1. I’ve wondered about this too! When I see them in the pond (here in Michigan where there are no alligators haha) I just assumed they were competing over a spot to be in the sun!
