Im new to this forum and my reason for joining is i really need some expert help,

I have a 6 yo female Yellow Belly Slider and she has been acting quite strange lately. She has been basking on her dock constantly for about 5 days, the only time she has went near the water is to put her head in for a drink. She also has been digging away at her dock, this is very noisey and she does it all night which she never done before. From researching online im thinking she either has a respitory infection or needs to lay eggs. I would appreciated any help or advise from others.

Thanks in advance

Yes, she wants to lay eggs. Can you provide a box with sand?

Agree, provide her with a land area to lay eggs, you don't want her to get egg-bound.
