I just got a baby turtle should it be in hot or cold area
room temperature is best. They aren't tropical reptiles and they aren't cold adjusted, either. I would try room temperature. If it doesn't act right, call a pet shop and ask them what to do.
I really dnt know bout turtles but yaknow sea baby turtles swim in the ocean wich is cold /:/
Hot, if it's cold it will go into hibernation
The best thing to do would be to put it in a boiling tank, and then make it into soup.
Cold, at least 20-40 degrees.
Room temp water.
Not all turtles are aquatic, best advice take to your vet or google for type and care if u do put in water only up to it's chin or provide a ramp to get out of the water.
