Baby tortoise hasn't pooped in 12 days

My baby tortoise hasn't pooped in 12 days he's otherwise in good shape. He eats & drinks daily, gets a warm soak (for 10 min.) daily, & outside sun & exercise throughout the day. I have a heat lamp that I turn on at night sometimes for him & I put a glass of water in the cage so it keeps the air humid. He eats romain lettuce & spinach (that's all he likes), I've tried carrots, tomatoes, hibiscus flowers, & grass but he won't eat those. Do I need to take him to a vet, & if so, who are some tortoise vets that you know of in Sarasota fl. that you recommend.
Thank you for any advice you can offer!!!
Tina

You should not feed your tortoise spinach and only lettuce....its low in nutrients..... he should his heat lamp and uv lights on daily like on in the day off at night so they can sleep.... I think maybe some research would be best.....try... http://www.tortoisecentre.co.uk/Tortoise%20care.aspx. good luck
