"I found in my porch a small, hurt what I believe is a Cagle's turtle. I been caring for it and actually got very active after about 2 weeks swimming and playing with another softshell that I also fostered. Recently I placed some feeding fish for them to eat but they were scared of them and I decided to take the fish out. For some reason the once active little turtle now wants to spend the day in the floating desk under the UV and warming lights and not wanting to swim that much anymore and won't even care to go for the mealworms I feed them. It will let me handle it and pet it but one O place it back in the floating log it jumps in the water for about 2-3 minutes before going back into the dry log and lights...Is that a normal behavior of these little guys? Thank you"
