    Where do you live? It might be just getting ready to hibernate.

    These are awful rare tortoise, even endangered.

    Read about their keep, diets, and behavior.

    Chances are, it is too cold. The water should be around 80 degrees F and the basking area about 90. It also helps to have the light on for at least 12 hour per day, all through the year. Decreasing day-length is a trigger for dormancy. Correct the temperatures and the lighting. If the slider does not start eating on its own, try tempting it with live earthworms of an appropriate size.
