Need Help!!!

Have have had my russian tortoise for about 6 months now. The last 2 days my tortoise has not come out of his hiding spot. I've kept him fed and he has good light sources. I don't think he's sick. Could he be hibernating? or should I take him to the vet??? please Help...

A Vet Is Always A Good Bet

This isn't the time of year for a tortoise to hibernate.

A tortoise will enervate if it is too hot.

If changing the temperature doesn't help, do take your tortoise to a veterinarian.
