then box turtles. I own several and they have never refused food. They actually beg like a dog.

I really thought it was going to eat a waxworm last night. It
stalked it and reached for it but then walked away. I am wondering if I am leaving it alone too much now that is has had time to acclimate. I read that baby turtles should be soaked daily and allowed to warm up as often times they will not come out of hiding. I have also added a red 40 watt reptile bulb for night in case maybe he was getting too cold.

What do you think, make him wake up or leave him alone and hope for the best? His weight was 52 grams and he is now 51 grams.

Thanks, Linda
