Ok, so, I don't know how many years ago it was that my grandpa found this turtle and gave it to my cousin. I don't know if it was someone's escape/released pet or a wild-caught turtle, but he gave it to my cousin and since he left home, his mother has been the primary caretaker. I'm house-sitting for them while they are out of town for spring break and have some questions about the turtle. I should preface this by making it clear that I know almost nothing about turtles. He's in a 30 long or so, with some sort of dirt/bark substrate that I'm 80% sure is from their yard, rather than store bought. He has a heat rock and a water dish, as well as a light which I think gives off UV, but I'm not 100% sure, nor do I know how old it is, so it might not be giving it off anymore. Now I know he's in dire need of a beak and nail trim-- I'm pretty sure he's never had one and he has the underbite from **** at the moment. I think something might be wrong with his eyes too. They seem swollen shut. He was burrowed and I dug him out to attempt to feed him, though I think he's hibernating, but then I saw the underbite and wasn't sure he could eat all that well. And I wasn't sure if his eyes were just shut because he'd been burrowed and it was just taking him some time to open them, on account of the dirt and such. They still seem a bit more bulbous than most pictures I've found online of box turtles though. I think I'm going to take him to my reptile shop on Monday and get his beak and toes trimmed, but I don't think they can do anything about the eyes. That's a vet issue, I assume. And that's where the problem comes in. I don't think I can afford to get him treated and I don't think they'll be willing to do it because they've had him for years and he's been fine as far as they're concerned, so they'll probably just not bother. I've been trying to get them to give him to the reptile shop but they want him to stay in the family, even though he's down in the garage and, more or less, completely ignored. I don't have my camera, but I'll see if I can get a decent picture of him with my cell phone and maybe I can get some advice then. At least, you can hopefully tell from the pictures if something's wrong with his eyes... I think it is, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. Pics coming soon, hopefully.
