Hi Kim

Was scoop in an outside pen during the warmer weather, and you have now brought her in doors ? I ask because Keya takes a few weeks to settle in her indoor pen after being outside, or have you put new substrate in. Keya goes barmey when I clean out her pen? just some suggestions

Hi Kim, have you double checked the temps under the lamps, that they are not too hot or cool?  And has she been wormed?

I have some babies whose tabletop is in the house and they are very active but they have been throughout! If she is eating and drinking as normal then she how she goes this next week, if you are at all worried though have your tortoise vet check her over.

Hi Kim

Did you get to the bottom of this? One of my little ones has randomly started going mad - charging around from the second he gets up until the second his lights go off and he goes to bed. Absolutely nothing has changed environmentally, and his brother who he lives with does not have to same problem. Please help!!!

Many thanks
