His markings are awesome.  I read that they like a rock to bask themselfs on.  Instead, I got an old abalone shell
that he climbs on.  They have pretty good eyesight and I guess around 20 feet or so, if he sees me coming he dives
back into the safety of the water and under the shell.

Thus, the name red slider.  Red for the markings on the side of his face and slider for the way he slides into the
water.  Left alone he will do this many times during the sunlight hours.

So what I do is get my binoculars out and observe him from a distance.  He is very aware of his surroundings
noticing things like leafs falling off the trees.
