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 you are housing the tortoise?




Have you soaked the tortoise?

Temps in enclosure?

Is the tortoise passing stool?

UVB light, linear tube or compact coil, strength and brand?

Basking light?

State to locate a Herp Vet?
