Baby Tort isn't eating
Posted: 28/02/2016 by Hotcocoamix84

I have a baby Russian tortoise. He's less than year old and usually a bottomless pit. He hasn't eaten in almost 2 weeks. He burrows into his substrate and sleeps almost all day. He did finally wake up yesterday and bathe himself in his water dish for about 30 min. I am unburying him everyday and placing him under his basking lamp to warm it okay to do this?  I just need some advice...I'm worried. I do remember him doing this once before...but not for this long.

Which basking lamp are you using ?
What is the temp' at tort level below the lamp ?

Can you post pics of the setup ?
