I dont know what to do. My turtle seems like she\'s sleeping a little too much...My schedule is crazy (I\'m a college student so i have a lot of loooooong nites) so I\'m not sure if she\'s just not getting enough sleep at night or what. What should i do?

Turtles actually sleep alot. :) Mine love to sleep under the basking light.

Lights should be left on for 12 hours in the spring and summer months and 10 hours in the winter. Water temp should be around 78 and basking area slightly warmer to encourage basking. Just make sure her enviroment is correct and she will be fine.
