Hi, My Turtle Fred Has Been Acting Weird. He Isn't Eating, Even When The Food Is Right In His Face. His Pupils Are Enlarged. He Isn't Following Me Like He Normally Does. He Isn't Getting Excited By Food. He Every Now And Then Looks Like He's Sneezing. He's Resting His Head Crooked On His Basking Spot. And His Right Arm Is Limp. Please Help, I Don't Understand What's Happening.

Hello and welcome

May just be feeling down and out with the change of seasons. As a precaution you can raise the water temp up to 80* and the basking to 90-92*. This normally will help when a turtles a little sick. I would separate him from Samm as a precaution if it's anything contagious.

In the mean time I would read up on RI infections , does have a few signs of RI. Learn all the signs of it and observe well also I would have a Herp Vets number nearby if needed.

Good read :

I would also try some different foods. How old is he? Are your RES kept together?
