1.I have a star turtle, can any one reccomend me how to identify the age of it?

2.sometime i keep me turtle with me and sleep, sometimes it comes underneath my body or whenever it sleeps i keep him inside a blanket folded to prevent it from cold due to this are there any chances that it would suffocate and die?
3.why does it doesn't eat the turtle food provided to him,he only feeds on ladyfinger"?
4.are UVB light helpful for the growth of it?
5.instead of UVB rays what about the early morning sunlight?
