"Hi I have just acquired what I believe to be a Painted Wood Turtle from a run down garden centre (they told me it was a North American one, but he has all the lovely designs on his face). I think he is ok apart from being a bit dry. He is in a pretty big tank with a big cat litter tray of water and bark substrate - I need to get moss and gravel tonight. I am a bit worried about temperature.I have never had a reptile before and although he is in our sun room which has underfloor heating, it is only about 17 degrees C. He also hasn't moved for a day and a half... is this normal - he is breathing and gives me withering looks when I take off the hay hut he is inside...any advice appreciated on heating. Thanks"

17 + 17 = ?
