Topics I've Started

As a new Hermann's keeper I've started growing edible plants in a propagator but was wondering whether I could actually seed the tortoise's enclosure so he can graze as the plants grow?

Hi, I've been the proud keeper of Marcel for three weeks and need some help as I'm concerned he's not settling well. He's around 18 months old.
For the first week he spent a lot of time out of his hiding place toddling around, eating well and generally going about his business.
However, for the past 10 days he gets up and eats well for about half an hour (he's gained a gram in weight since we've had him) then it's back to bed and we don't see him again until the following morning unless we get him up for a bath which we do every other day.
When he is up he's bright eyed and alert and doesn't have any outward signs of ill-health - we'd just like to see more of him.
I've followed all the advice about light and heat with warmer and cooler areas but don't know what else to do to stimulate activity.
Any advice gratefully received. Simon
