Cisco is an Extrovert or a Member of PETA

My son's turtle Cisco (A.K.A. Two Bills) is a red eared snapper.  He spends most of his time underwater and avoiding our gaze.  One time we got him out of his "habitat" and put him on the carpet only to realize that what they say about turtles CLEARLY isn't true of all turtles.  Let's just say there was a lot of screaming and my husband had to really run to catch the thing! 

Cisco eats pellets we bought at the pet center, but everyone once in awhile we'll give him a bug or a moth, etc. which he devours the way I do yogurt covered pretzels.  A month ago my husband went and got Cisco a very special treat...some live fish.  We thought Cisco would gorge himself and be so happy he might actually make eye contact with one of us...

NOT SO MUCH.  Apprently Cisco would rather cohabit-ate with the fish than have them for lunch!?!  We'll never know the truth behind the hunger strike, but I have two theories...Is our turtle really an extrovert who craves the company of anyone but us?  Or is he a card carrying PETA member?
