    She has been hibernating since November and just recently started basking daily. Today I noticed her eyes won't open when I was trying to feed her her first meal. New to tegus so not sure what it could be.

    Perhaps a vitamin deficiency. Commin in captive aquatic turtles.

    This happened to mine and it was a vitamin A deficiency.

    Seemingly one symptom, many causes.
