A teacher at the school I work at found a baby 3 stripe on campus stuck in a crack in the sidewalk. She came to me with it and asked if it would make a good classroom pet. i of course said it was much better than any slider she would get with the size requirements ect. Well she decided to keep it. I gave her tons of sites that would help and gave her the minimum requiremnets that the turtle would need. Well to make a long story shory all she did was put it in a small tupperware container with no lid and put it under an small lamp she had in her classroom. i politely told her that would take it untill she got the tank etc.

So I have it here now with all the requirments that it needs Having raised several other babies int he same set/up.

WOW this is turning out longer than i thought. oh well

Anyway the baby is floating on the surface and seems to not be able to sink to the bottom

Is there anything i can do for this?

Thanks
