    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    I now have the proper lighting you told me about now (the HO T5 UV tube light), but the temp/humidity sensor hasn't come in yet. I'll let you know the readings of it when it comes in.

    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    Potentially good news, his eyes have opened (somewhat). I have been giving him the pureed collard green soaks and reptile rinse eye drops every day and it finally seems to be making progress. I say somewhat because I can only sort of see his eyeball. I'll show pictures to show you what I mean. I...

    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    Not that I can tell. But I had just gotten the reptile rinse today and I only started giving him the collard green soaks yesterday, so I didn't really expect much to happen right away. It seems he's a lot more active though, which hopefully is a good sign of things to come.

    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    Thank you for the advice, and I will get the bulb asap. I will try and keep updating on his status. Would this bulb suffice?

    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    Here are closeups of my Tortoise's eyes and the enclosure. I don't have an exact humidity/temp reading as they were both lost because our family moves so often and things get lost. But when I did have them, I've always done the same routine of keeping the enclosure hot/humid and they always had...

    Russian Tortoise Won't Open His Eyes

    Hi, I have a Russian Tortoise who recently got out of hibernation and won't open his eyes, won't eat, and will only drink when I give him a soak. I've looked this up, and I've gotten a thousand different answers all telling me different things. I assume he won't eat because he can't see since...
