It sounds like this animal is dead. If you touch a foot and there is no reaction, you are probably safe to bury it.

I usually let my turtle roam my bed but I was sleeping and it got away, I start looking for it as always, I ended up never finding, until I moved my bed and saw it was stuck in between the bed and the wall. When I first lost it, that’s the place I check first right away always. But I guess it either found a way in or I didn’t look carefully enough. It was only a few months old. And now it’s dead.. and I never even got to name it.. :(

Electricity to revive a turtle
by: Shelly

I removed a comment that suggested putting the animal in water and adding an electrical current. If the animal was still alive, this would almost certainly kill it. Do NOT put an electrical current through any animal.

Keep it slow and steady.

If your pet has died, there is nothing you can do about that.

I'm sorry. I wish there were better news.
