sorry to speak of such around tea time BUT... havent seen many "presents" left by the boy for the last few weeks. ph34r.gif

I am bathing him for 20mins each day and still not much movements.. (or wees in there to be fair)

its Just reading the post from the ladie offering stuff for worms and noticed she said about the weeds COULD contain something. Would lack of pooing be a sign? I assume if there is a poo i would see some worms? but not seeing poos could be an issue and so cant do the Davide bellemy on ivestigating them if i havent seen one.

any idea's please.

thanks

Hi D,
Sometimes tortoises can go a while without eating. When this happens they don't poo alot. I wouldn't worry about worms until Alfie has actually lost weight. Hope this helps. Best of luck D wink.gif
Kind Regards

arrh.... he likes a kiss.
we have a mini cuddle on the sofa and he comes up and puts his cold nose on my lip. think he likes the warm air from me nostails on him, like a heater!! he'd sit there for hours if Id let him.
the thought of him eating poo has stoped that little ritual!!!
