All torts when moved go off their food for a while. Every time I switch enclosures with my redfoot he goes off food for 5-10 days. In nature it's not uncommon for torts to stop eating. If it's last more than 10 days I 'd worry then. Just keep offering fresh foods.
Orange Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva)

My neighbors refer to them as "tiger lily" but I don't think that's right. Tiger Lily (Lilium lancifolium) are...
I used a heavy shower curtain and then attached it on the sides (inside) about 5" up with gorilla tape. Has worked perfectly fine for almost a year. Good thing about the tape is its waterproof and seals every gap.

Finally built a new day enclosure for my 1 yr old redfoot
June -Sept is the only viable time I can get the little turd outside and I'll never leave him out overnight - too many raccoons, skunks, and cats in my neighbourhood.
First day out today as the temp was +85F and high humidity makes it...
Both my 18" T5's blew out yesterday - ON THE SAME DAY?
Unbelievable. What are the odds?
Usually wouldn't bother me as if I order a new one on Amazon I get it in 1-2 days.
But now? Amazon says May 24 - 27 window!
Hopefully my shelled friends will be OK in the dark for a week! LOL 🐢🌘💡
I offer a boiled egg once a month to supplement protein
I also offer mealworms every so often (2-3x/month)
But I do use pellets once a week and the one I use has protein
Too much protein is not good for a RF
