Baby Red Eared Slider Attacked By Bigger One
I have a red eared slider that we've had for a year. There were men selling babies at a festival and after they advised me that the two would "Thrive" together in my tank I purchased the baby. I put the baby in the tank with the other and the 1st day they were fine, kinda checking each other out. Both being skiddish about the other. The 2nd day, yesterday, I woke up to find that the bigger one had the baby by the foot shaking him around. I removed him from the tank and put him back in the small cage he came in. When he was first released by the other turtle he swam to to basking platform and climbed up. When I picked it up he was moving and trying to get away (like normal I assume) but as soon as I out him in the tank he crawled to a corner and closed his eyes. He hasnt really moved since. Nor has he opened his eyes. He's been like this for one day. Because I do not have a heat lamp and figured the water was cool since its cool in my house and theres only bout an inch of water in there, i took him outside to see if getting some sun would help. He started moving around trying to get shade. So he is still moving, although not very much, but is not opening his eyes and hasnt ate in about 36 hours. ????? Oh and every once in a while he opens his mouth...
