Russian tortoise not eating

by Susie
(Westville, IN USA)

Hello, I have a 4 year old russian tortoise. She used to eat with no problems. But in the past 3 weeks she started eating less and less. at first I thought she was just sick of the Romaine Lettuce and I have tried Red and Green lettuce, tomatoes (once in a while) and I have tried all the greens I could. Now she won't eat. People tell me it cause of the weather change and she's probably hibernating but I'm so worried about her. Do you have any ideas or am i just a over worried mother?
