:A while back I asked this forum to help me get my turtle out of her little hibernation spell, and I took all the advice I could get: I turned up the water temp, turned up the room temp, got the lamp all set up. So what does my RES do? She sleeps! All she does is sleep! And if I wake her up and put her into the water with a few food pellets, she'll eat the pellets (but only when I'm not looking)and poop every now and then, and then crawls out of the pool and buries herself under the bark again. I'm getting really frustrated!!!!!! ARG! Can someone help? Should I just go really desperate and toss all the bark and just keep her in a huge container of water for the rest of her life? Isn't she supposed to have land somewhere?


I agree ...you could have a metabolic imbalance in your RES.. How long are your lights on a day? I would also remove the substrate that your turtle is burying in. You need to be able to see her. Give me a more detailed routine for your turtle right now and before hibernation..
