I got a forest hingeback two weeks ago from Petland. When I brought her home she was eating. I noticed the last couple of days she has not been eating. I went back to Petland and they told me to buy a 100 wt bulb and make sure the temp. in her tank is between 75-80 degrees. she is still not eating this was sat. please advise.Janet

hingeback not eating

The lamp should help if your tortoise is not actually sick and if you are offering good food.


If the lamp and food choices don't make a difference, see a vet right away.

There could be another problem that a vet can diagnose only by examining your pet.

Keep it slow and steady.
