General Care Discussion :: Why does my turtle not get in the water often?

Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

My RES is in a small rubbermaid container in my garage that has a floating dock. She is spending a lot of time just sitting on the dock. I don't have a basking light or anything other than a heater in the water. Every weekend, I manually carry my turtle tank from garage to backyard to spend a day in real California sun. My turtle is still very active and acts normally. Is this normal for turtle to not be in the water often even though I don't have a basking light?

Reviewed all your post since 2014 to get an idea , saw all the problems and the R.I.P's ! I suggest you need to re-read all informational sticky's on this forum under each topic or as a good read here : http://www.redearslider.com/

More time and attention to a correct habitat is needed !

When one makes a captive animal a pet it your job to offer it a healthy habitat , turtles can live 50 pulse year's
