Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.

Can you tell me where the tortoise is housed?

If housed inside do you have a UVB light?

Diet?

Does the tortoise get soaks?

Can you post a picture of the tortoise so I can have a visual of the shell.
