Lethargic African Side neck turtle

by Shawn
(Fortville, IN USA)

My daughter has 2 African Side Neck turtles. One of them is acting a bit lethargic. She is not moving around a lot. She was laying on the basking area for a great while and starting to look rather dry. We put her back in the water and she doesn't move much. We are afraid she may be sick but are not sure. Is there a way to tell if your turtle is sick? I am going to see about taking her to the vet but won't be able to get her in until Monday (this is Friday night).

What would you recommend?

Thanks for your help!
