Tarapine is not well

by Mrs Low

My Tarapine was still eating and swimming fine last week. But just three days ago, I noticed that it is not eating and it stays either on rock most of the time. Even if it swims, it floats in water and can't balance. Can you please tell me why?

Unbalanced Terrapin

If your terrapin can not balance in the water, it is most likely that there is a problem with its lungs. Please see a vet as soon as possible. This sort of problem is not likely to correct itself.

Keep it slow and steady.
