What are your thoughts is it possible to teach Tricks to our pet turtle?

A lot of people think that turtles are not smart enough to learn the tricks and turtles are pets that are more for show than anything else. The truth is that even though their brains are slightly more primitive than say a dog, it is still possible to teach them your skills and tricks, but I say this knowing that it would not be a straightforward trip for an owner who wants to invest time and effort to teach their new skills turtle.
In fact, there are three things that I think you'll have to make it easier to learn your turtle new things, and they are ...
1) age turtle
Young turtles are much easier to learn the tricks turtle than older and more mature with them. Unfortunately this is a case of not being able to teach old turtle new tricks, because the adults get stuck in. .. yep you guessed it, their old ways. Younger aged one year old tortoise is ideal to start training, and if your patient and make it a common thing you will notice progress.
2) The species of turtle
Some species of tortoise are smarter than others, and trying to train them become easier. A turtle, for example, are harder to train than a box turtle as Box turtles turtles are pretty smart. Most turtles can learn new things, but some are just a little more slowly than others.
3) How good of a bond you have with your pet
To really help your progress turtles, you should have a good bond with them. If your turtle is uncomfortable or afraid of you it's hard to even get them to come out from their shells around you. If your turtle bites you when you try to handle it, it is also a clear sign that it does not trust you in cases like this you have to take time to build trust between you and your turtle, and only then you can take things further by teaching them tricks Turtle.
