That assertion makes me laugh out loud!!!

My entire group of turtles haven't eaten in over a month, and they won't eat for the next 6 months.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with them: they are readying themselves for hibernation, and they stop eating by the 2nd or 3rd week in September. This happens every year: they stop eating at the beginning of autumn, they hibernate, and once they emerge, they don't start eating again until April or so.

Oy.
