Turtles need supervision at all times when outside, unless they are in a turtle proof area. Baby\'s are at risk in many ways. What is your weather like? Sudden drops in temps can cause infections. Neighborhood animals could find your baby, even some birds will try to take them. Crows come to mind as they try to get mine if my netting comes loose. Turtles love to dig. It is quite possible that your baby dug underneath your grass mat. My bigger ones will even do that. It makes it very hard to see them. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news however,it is very probable that you will not find your little one. :(
