my baby red ear slider always keeps its eyes closed and likes to stay on its basking rock. when i put it in the water it opens its eyes and when its sunning its eyes are fine and its active. he eats and he still swims. is this just a vitamin A defficiency or something more serious? or does he just have a knack for sleeping now?
