    If it's really true that the intestine is "blown", I'm interpreting this to mean it is ruptured? This means the tortoise is slowly dying. It won't heal itself. In my opinion, the kindest thing would be to euthanize the animal.

    hello everyone,i am thinking about making an enclosure for my tortoise and while i was reading about substrate choices for tortoise an Idea came to me,Why Not Use the dried and crushed leaves as a substrate or part of substrate for these guys,i have arranged something like it in Temporary enclosure used only for sleeping at night......Would Love to know what the other members think of it and can it be applied to the new enclosure i m making.The dried leaves are of arabian mogra plant and he like to burrow in them

    hey mrunal,seems like the experts are busy so as a fellow newbie a would like to give a helping hand,the one with respiratory problems may have cold issue so try having a heat source always available,my tortoise also had the same problem but after a little more warm environment and sun bath the illness was gone,try giving carrots in grated form sprinkled on the tiny sized cuttings of main food,and try googling a little about their diet as well...
