    she was perfectly alright.
    After travelling 5 hours to a warm climate area by road, I got her back to me and this is what happened to her. What should I do?
    I am very upset

    To me, she looks stressed maybe from the trip. She may also need to lay an egg? Have you gently felt inside her vent to make sure she's not egg bound?

    I would put her somewhere quiet and cooler if you can. Provide her with some electrolytes or a little sugar water. See if she perks up after she settles a little.
