I have a hatchling North American Wood turtle that gets so excited all the time that he is constantly flipping himself over in his tank. The water is shallow probably about 1/2" at the the deepest point, but I still worry about him. His carapace is so broad compared to my other turtles that he has a hard time flipping himself back over. Today I found him asleep on his back. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
