My Hermann tortoise hatchling Ziggy seems to be quite lazy and really likes to burrow and and bury. He is about seven to eight weeks old. He does have a 160w exo terra mecury vapor bulb so Ziggy does get uvb and heat. I give him daily soaks and he is active after that when i let him wander around my bed but likes to dig back down when he is back in his box. He eats good as well. Am i doing anything wrong? Is there something I need to change.

What distance is the lamp above the tortoise & what is the temperature at tortoise level when the lamp is on ?

Can you send some pics of the set up please?

Wandering on your bed is not good, they should be left in their own environment.
