Eye Problems
by: Shelly

Eye problems are serious. A turtle uses vision to find food. A turtle who can't see will need to be hand fed. But worse than that, an eye infection can spread to other parts of the body.

A vet can do an examination and give you an exact diagnosis and medication. The vet may tell you to make some changes in the habitat as well.

Best wishes.

Keep it slow and steady.

PS Please come back to let us know what happens.

A disease

I had a terrapin in the same condition before and it is now out of this world. Your terrapin is suffering from pneumonia and it is incurable :(.
Separate it from your terrapins to prevent the spreading of the infection if you have any sharing the same tank.
To make sure it is pneumonia, see of the shell if it is soft and not hard like rock.

it means you got a problem...they must be mating, but maybe the female is to small for the male, if this continues see a vet.
