Why won't my turtle (a spiny turtle), that I've just recently bought, eat? It's been 1 week and the turtle still hasn't eat. The turtle is 12 inch (30 cm) long (I reckon she is quite old). I've tried putting it and it's food in warm water that's appropriate for her, putting her and it's food under the sun, and even tried variety of food, but it still won't eat. There are no signs of swollen eyes or mucus. She never yawns, she barely opens her mouth. She seems sluggish and doesn't move that much. Is she just adapting or there is an illness going on?
