Make sure he is warm and well hydrated. Soak him in a warm bath for 15-20 minutes a couple times a week. Make sure he has proper lighting and also a warm area to sleep. This should stimulate his appetite. Look up caring for a Russian Tortoise in Google.Good luck, I have 3 Russians and they are great Tortoises.
