    Russian not eating, pooping

    Phew!!! Now I can breathe. Thank you so much for replying so quickly with a reassuring message. I have read about brumation and have never put Boris into it. That would tip me over the edge right now. I care deeply and get myself so stressed out. Especially since lockdown here again in Scotland...

    Russian not eating, pooping

    Hi all. I've asked about this topic before. And I am honestly at the end of my tether and don't know why my Russian tortoise Boris has been off his food, not pooped and is extra sleepy for weeks now. Before this he was stomping around and around his enclosure like a bull, but not eating them...

    Hi Kim &Tim. I was looking at your enclosure photos again for some inspiration and it's just so lovely! Your enclosure is my favourite design. I've ordered some wooden arches for my Boris to give him something new. I hope you and tort are doing well and are safe and healthy during this strange...

    My Russian tortoise is not eating but is stomping around his enclosure.

    Thanks for the reply. I think this is probably what's happening with his hormones. His enclosure is waist height on legs. I'll move the dishes and hope he settles and gets interested in his food again soon. He usually gobbles up his mazuri pellets, but won't even look at them at the moment. Due...

    My Russian tortoise is not eating but is stomping around his enclosure.

    Hi I am using 60w flood bulbs(no spots) in ceramic lamps and there an Arcadia ProT5 UV 39W strip light which is mounted down the top centre of his enclosure. The table is on legs up to waist height and he is next to a window for natural light also. Thanks for the idea of moving the dishes, I'll...

    More photos. I can't post videos and the pics keep cancelling. Very annoying.

    My Russian tortoise is not eating but is stomping around his enclosure.

    Hi. My enclosure is 6ft by almost 3ft open. I don't let him roam because we have dogs. I've attached a video of Boris. He's trashed his enclosure and keeps trampling through his water dish and filling it with Coco soil. His food is everywhere. I've just replaced his ceramic heater as this was...

    My Russian tortoise is not eating but is stomping around his enclosure.

    Hi. I wonder if anyone has an be advice please. Our 3 year old tortoise Boris has for the last week and a half been stomping around and around his enclosure but not eaten a thing. He is stomping all over his food and spreading it about. He is trying to climb the walls and has behaved this way...

    My Russian tortoise is sleeping a lot more but nothings changed in his enclosure.

    Well OMG!! He's definitely a boy!! My Boris has just been soaked and he's more active today, in fact he stool tall on all fours and I was wondering what on earth he was about to do? Maybe a massive poo? Then....out came what must be his penis! It was pinky purple, like a little a little trumpet...

    That's good. Ah, ok. His nose is clear and no coughing or sneezing. Would you mind sharing some pics of your Timmie? I'd love to see his outdoor enclosure. Thanks again.

    My Russian tortoise is sleeping a lot more but nothings changed in his enclosure.

    Would you say he was a healthy weight for his age? His poops are dark, moist and firm, Urates liquidy but quite a lot of it. He seems fine. Those wee shiny eyes looking at me when I lift him up to eye level. Yep, he seems fine except for the sleepiness. I'll try what you suggested and soak...

    Sounds gross but I do have a good look at his poo very often. Are the worm eggs visible? I've not seen anything in them but I will need to get my son's microscope set up for a detailed look. How delightful! 😃

    That's good to know. I'll try to stop worrying and keep to a routine. And yes, I agree that I should get a proper setup for outside. The weather is exactly the same here today! Windy, rain and 13degrees. Thank you very much for your good advice and reassurance.
