Observations of intraspecific kleptoparasitism and aggression over food are reported in captive midland painted turtles (Chrysemys picta marginata) for the first time, and compared with similar observations in other species of aquatic turtles. To what extent (if any) these behaviors occur in wild populations of aquatic turtles remains unknown.
