Give them some time to adjust, and keep the water and basking area at the temps previously recommended.

I am new at this turtle thing..a water turtle made its way into my garage 4 days ago and was all dried out. Being a kind person who takes everything in he or she is now my our pet. I set up the tank and gave him a place to rest and dry out with a light to keep him warm, but he hasnt eaten a thing since. I tried turtle pellets, tuna and I put some little gold fish in today. Should I turn him loose? Or is there hope? I sure dont want him to die!

Thank you
