Hi Merna what temperature are you providing for your lttle one? They need plenty of heat and light, but too much heat can make them hide away. As Bruce says, they cand take time to settle after a big change too. Keep us posted.

Hi Merna,

Welcome to the forum. :D

What type of tortoise is she? Some types do not hibernate at all. If you were able to post a picture someone might be able to help identify her.

Hi Merna. If you got hyour tortoise in Egypt then it is most likely not a hermann. We would need to know what kind it is to give you the right advice. Can you post a photo of it?
