I have 2sulcatas, both of them are 3months old.
One of them has not been pooped off while being forced soak for a several weeks.
But the other one always pooped off immediately after put him in warm water.
If he has not pooped off for several week, he would be alright?
Recently my baby leopard tortoise has not opened his eyes for a week,
He always sleep all days, even pick him up his eyes still always close.

I'm Ekkapat from Thailand.
I'm new here and just posted initial thread yesterday.
This "TortoiseForum" is so helpful and useful for me.
In Thailand, tortoises are not so popular as pet then hard for me to get helpful information.
I have 3 Indian star, 1 sulcata, and 1 leopard...
Actually I don't know actual ages of my five torts.
As links below, in the last scene of "My baby tortoises" video
I wrote down their ages by guessing from my feeling.
Could some of you tell me more correct ages of my five torts?
