I got my tortoise on Christmas Day and she excreted on this day. She hasn't excreted since. She has a good appetite and I bath her in warm water everyday. She has passed a white liquid while in the bath, but she has only done this once. How often should I expect my tortoise to poo?
Any help please.
Thanks.

Tortoises don't poo on a daily basis like mammals do. If they did it would mean they were eating far too much. It takes several weeks for food to pass through their system, therefore they only empty when full, which could be several days or more.
