What is the temp in her tank?

Many people do not let their turtles go into hibernation, especialy if they are not in very good health. You can keep them from hibernating by keeping the tank at a constant temp of 78-80 deg. If the water is not warm enough your turtle will not eat correctly anyway. Check out the care sheets at the top of this page for some good information on keeping your pet. Just like any animal you have to have the correct setup, you compromise the health and life of your turtle.
