It is very dangerous to put a sick turtle or tortoise into hibernation. If you do not have a local vet you can consult on this question, you can ask a vet online, You have to pay, but it would be worth it. Copy and paste the link here to find a form that will take you to the online vet.


Good luck.

Your turtle is not getting a proper diet. Do not feed your turtle lettuce. Buy turtle food at the pet food store. It needs to be in the sunlight for 10 minutes a day. Too much direct sun will kill it, but it does need sunlight to be healthy. Doing these two things will help the shell be stronger in a week.

Your turtle is not getting enough calcium. You need to provide proper lighting and enough calcium. Without either, your turtle will eventually die.

Here is some good information on lighting.
