Baby tortoise
by: Whitney J

I have a baby as well and she sleeps most the day. I notice she wakes up and roams her tank around mid day to early evening. She eats then retreats back to her house and sleeps until the next day. I don't think there's a problem, babies sleep :) But I'm not an expert so you be the judge.

just dont worry

hi dear
if your tortoise is not moving then please do one thing first i.e. dont let him eat much. give him food in very small amounts. because of which it will not starve. but remember feed once a day. your tortoise may not be moving because of over eating. normally baby tortoises have a habit of over eating.
if even this dosnt help out then please consult a vet immediately.
you are the one who knows your baby much. so dont let it be ill for much time.
