I have a lot of experience with tortoises and turtles, i've had mine for over 3 years now.. But recently my mississippi map [baby] escaped. It actually took me 2 and a half days to find him... I just found him and hes pretty much halfway dead.. his eyes are closed shut and hes just floating in the water, luckily i can see him breathing and he is swimming from time to time. What should i do?


I know this site isnt really a turtle forum but hopefully i can get help from someone!

I don't know really what to tell you. Glad you found him. I would put I'm in a small area so he doesn't have to use a lot of energy and get him warmed up some and see if you can get him to eat. Maybe others will have an idea. You could also take him to the vet, not sure though if there is much they could do. Good luck, hope he pulls through.

Post a thread in the water turtle section. That's where the experienced aquatic keepers look for threads :)

Just a tip to give you the best traffic for your question.
