This is my tortoise sleeping This is my tortoise in the cornor of the cage digging.

My horsefield tortoise isnt very active hes round about 3years old however i only got him 2 days ago i turn his lights off at 8pm but he starts to go to sleep about an hour before and i turn them back on at 8am and he sleeps for about 2-3hours after ive turned it back on, however he does wake up after a while and move about on the first day he did eat and drink so he seems to be comfortable but after hes eaten he will go it to the cool area conner and dig however when he gets to the bottom of the cage he scratchs the sides.

Is this normal behaviour?
if not could you tell me what could be wrong with him?

Sounds like he wants to hibernate, google all info on hibernating your Tortoise, also make sure he is properly hydrated, and has both UVA & UVB lighting...
