Is our baby Ruissian tortoise dead or can she be hibernating?
we've had our russian tortoise for 1 week now. She lives in an outdoor enclosure during the day & indoors under a heat lamp at night. 2 days ago she was VERY active & eating. Yesterday she was slow & closing her eyes a lot! When I put her in her encloseure lastnight she seemed to fall asleep quickly (eyes closed) & she urinated where she slept. This morning she was in the EXACT same spot but her head was pulled into her shell (all 4 legs are outside of her shell). We've picked her up & there was NO movement. Her head is still in her shell & legs are out. Is it possible she is hibernating at this young age or is she dead?
