I totally agree with Manny. I found that Cycluras do have their own personalities and some do like to soak (learned captive behavior?) and some won't go near them except to drink. Although we can all learn from their behavior in the wild, in captivity, they do adapt to the environment provided (many be in the wild, they do not have access to shallow pools they can soak in?) and act accordingly. I have yet to see any damage from bathing them for short time and I do not know what the big deal is if we choose to treat our pet to some soak. Just my two cents.....
