It might be that if she does have shell rot she might be more sensative to heat, I\'d lower the temp in the tank myself.

Your turtle might be trying to get out to drink some water.

most probably yes that\'s why..even if she doesn\'t need to drink it\'s just that she\'s used to having water (she was diving not normal water!) and maybe doesn\'t get the idea for why she\'s out..(she can\'t see her shell:p)
glad to hear she\'s getting better:)

Good idea, I\'ll get to work on it! (yeah right, I wish) anyway, it is a good idea, that way for those people that mistreat animals we could just turn them into those animals so that they can see what they go through when humans are mean to them.Image
