Hello,
I am sorry nobody responded sooner. It was just sent to me. My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and reptile rescue?
Is the turtle still in the pool?
Are the legs and head out of the shell?
Can the feet touch the bottom?
Have you taken the turtle out and examined her?
