Hello, actully I have a indian star tortoise.

Now the problem is that when I had got them they were very active and not scared that much.
But from past few days they don't walk at all and they get very scared as compared to earlier. They have started eating very less. And 1 more thing is that I'm not able to provide sunlight or uvb light, what sholud I do.
Please help me
Thank you.

Indian Star Needs Help
by: Shelly

Your tortoises will die without sunlight UVB light. Please take them to an animal rescue center so someone can take proper care of them.

Keep it slow and steady.
