I've discovered recently that a lot of the fun of keeping stinkpots is how silly they look when they sleep.

My female apparently passed out while basking. I took a photo, and then tapped her on the shell. The second photo shows her a little startled. I thought she'd jump into the water, but she stayed there until I walked away, and then fell asleep again within fifteen minutes.

(lest anyone think she's being bullied into staying out of the water, she spends the vast majority of her time in the water, but still seems to enjoy sleeping out of the water from time to time).
