Juvenile horsefield has stopped eating
Posted: 08/02/2015 by lozjonno

Hi


I've recently purchased a 6 month old horsefield tortoise and just he has stopped eating over the past few days (3 days without anything.) Is this normal? Is there anything I can do? He just seems to want to sleep all day. I'm a new tortoise owner and am getting worried about him. 

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,


It should eat daily. Can you post details of how you are keeping it please, as much info as possible ? Photos of your set-up would also be very useful.

Regards,
Tom

Hi its important now keep up with hydration if the tortoise has stopped eating.

your tortoise will take a few weeks to adjust to its new surroundings... but please dont leave it to long before seeking further advice ..
What are your temps like on your tortoise table?
