Hi,

I got my girlfriend a RES. When I was taking care of it seem fine. It ate and moved. When I took the turtle to her I didn\'t put him in that much water just enough to cover it\'s feet. It was a 4hrs. trip to her place, she is at college. When we got there it eyes where shut. Now he has his second eye lid shut all the time and has not eaten in two days. The turtle uncovers one eye sometimes but only for a few minutes. He moves around but not as much as when I had him at my place. Is this normal or was his eyes hurt due to not being covered with water during the 4hr. trip. Could it be just the change for my plave to hers? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

If the turtle is young, the lack of water may have dried it out. And it\'s easy for a turtle to be scared if you move it around too much.
