AS the owner of 5 turtles for a long time I will be the first
to blast you and ask WHY you took it from the wild? This
was not yours to take and with all of the captive bred
specimens available this is no longer necessary. You probably
took it in, and if you did what most people do, not know
enough on how to take care of it thus it is now sick and
NEEDS TO SEE A VET!! Swimming lopsided is a sign of pneumonia
or respiratory disease which can be brought on by stress (being
taken from the wild) Get this guy to the vet and once it
is better set it free and get a captive bred instead. Keep the
temps up in the meantime as stated on the other post.
