Take him out and soak him in shallow water luke to slightly warm water every day for a week..Its not unusual for your Tort to think its time to hibernate this time of year . But you must soak him so that his intestines need to be emptied before hibernation. If there are any other signs that he may be sick, take him to a vet and have him checked out...
