    first outing

    I have a cage very similar to yours, and my tortoise always tried to escape that cage. One day he managed to push the cage door open, and we searched for what seemed like hours, and finally found him. But you might not be able to find your little tort again. We did get a lock on it so he can't...

    Tortoise burrowing and sleeping all day

    Sorry I should have mentioned it is only pretty dark at night, it is nice and light in the day time. Before he moved rooms it was completely dark in his enclosure at night.

    He is outside right now, and I just noticed some bubbles/foam in the front corner of both eyes. I literally just noticed this. Do you think this could be because of the light too?

    Also, there is another light on in the room that he is in that we can't turn off. He still has lots of darkness in his enclosure and a hide that he never uses though. Could this be an issue too? I will look into another light.

    He has used the same light ever since I got him, (a year ago) and this behavior is new. Why would it just start affecting him now? Thank you.

    The UV bulb is 12in from the ground of the enclosure. I will look into the other types of UV bulbs you mentioned. Thank you for your help! Here is a pic I found of the bulb I am using. .

    Sorry, yes, it is a tube bulb. I have used the same bulb since I got him. Do you think it would just now start to hurt his eyes?

    I think I am using a 10.0 uvb light if that answers your question. Yes I am using a CHE for basking, I can see if we could change that if its a problem. Just curious, how would the bulb affect his behavior? He sits under one a lot, will it hurt him? Thank you very much for your advice.
