Just got a turtle from a co-worker that didn\'t know how to care for him. He seems to be in pretty bad shape. He has a small hole on the bottom of his shell that almost looks like a burn. He can\'t swim very well because the back end of shell sticks out of the water. Could this be pneumonia? I hope that someone can tell me what I should do with him until I can take him to the vet tomorrow.

It will probably be ok until tomorrow, just keep an eye on it. Keep the water a decent 80-85 and create a dry area for it to rest.
