    which one is better

    Dear experts, could you tell which of the three sentences below sounds best in English, if any:

    1. "The turtle prefers to withdraw both physically and psychically from the conflict rather than to face it."
    2. "Turtles would withdraw - physically and psychically- from a conflict rather than to face it."
    3. "Turtles would rather withraw - physically and psychically- from a conflict than to face it."

    #1 is the only one which is acceptable, and even that would be better without "to"..
