I\'ve only had my turtle for about four days now but he won\'t bask at all. At first it was because the rock set up was too difficult for him to climb but I have made it easier and he still won\'t bask!!
Any suggestions????

Since he\'s new and adjusting, giving him some privacy to bask might help. If he\'s in a room/area that gets a lot of traffic, it would be good to move him.

I think your new turtle will be just fine he is probably just adjusting to his new surroundings and will need to be kept in a quiet area so that he can relax and learn to feel comfortable in his new home. Make sure to keep the water warm(72-78 degrees)and his basking platform ten degrees warmer.
Good luck:)
