Yes, reptiles are cold blooded and can die if they get too cold. There probably isn't much (if any) natural sunlight in the garage either - some filtered sunlight (not direct) would be good too. Does he have a UVB light and a basking lamp? You can also keep a better eye on him inside your home. If you have a space for him bring him (and the tank) inside.

I have a red-eared slider and his eyes have a film over them. This possibly came from not getting to clean out the tank like we should have. What can we do to help this?? He wonders around the tank like he cant see. If you put his food in front of him, he acts like he cant see it. We had two turtles in the tank during this time but this has only happened to one. The other turtles seems to be fine. We are very concerned about is problem we have please help??

Grumpy is between 15 and 20 years old now and still loves her hamburger treats. She also loves strawberries and watermelon. She eats almost any vegetable you give her but hates pinapple. She has 3 other turtle friends that have been around almost as long as she has. Her name is Grumpy because she always likes to play bite at me when I pick her up to talk with her and clean her home. Just thought you might like to know about a much older turtle than I have seen here so far, she is still growing and still shedding her shell too. Have fun with your turtles and be prepared to have them as your pets for a very long time.
Hi, my name is jason. I have RES and they get along. The strange thing is they watch tv, like anime, whenever I turn on the tv.
