    Russian Tortoise Sleeping A LOT, Should I Wake Him?

    My RT has been sleeping a TON lately, is it because of brumation/hibernation? I'm not sure what to think.

    I don't have my supplies yet

This is my second day owning a RT and I ordered all of its supplies when I came home with it. Its appropriate enclosure is arriving on Wednesday so I...
