Well, its been 4 weeks since I removed the Bad Repti-Glo 10.0 bulb and put in a ReptiSUN 5.0 bulb in its place.
His eyes have healed up, but he's still soooooooo lethargic

Because I know the 5.0 bulb...

I've been monitoring my young sulcata since the whole BAD UV light situation...
And he's still very lethargic and keeps his eyes close most of the day..

I had one growing in the window.. read that it was ok for them and non toxic..

Just wanted to let any canadians on the board that if you have trouble finding organic seed mixes for your tortoise, Let me know I've found a local organic farm that has a massive list of grazing grasses , weeds and flowers. I got a 1 lb grazing mix of grasses for $10!
thats a lotta...
Here's a list that I had emailed to me that was shown as acceptable food options for my sulcata. The list is quite expensive.

I had a 250 Watt Red IR bulb, but after some discussions decided to change it to a bright (white/clear ) IR heat bulb..
So I returned the 250 watt Red bulb, and got a...
as some of you may know, my custom enclosure has a screen lid.. and throughout the last couple weeks ive been trying to figure out why my little guy is sleeping so much and inactive.. even though when i wake him he'll eat like a horse... and otherwise is healthy.
Since ive never had a tortoise before, and my vet appt isnt for another 2 days..
Here's a close up shot of my 4" sulcata's nose.
Maybe you've never seen one up this close haha but do you see anything out of the ordinary? looks like his tiny nostrils are clear to me..
My young sulcata fredrick.. im concerned that there may be an issue..
He always seems to keep one eye shut for the first while of being awake.. rubbs at it then he'll open it.
2nd.. he's only awake 10 - 15 minutes at a time most of the time, less he's out for a soak...
For the last few days I've had a webcam setup inside my torotise's enclosure,
I call it the FreddyCam! , I gave the website out to a few people around here, and it seems word has spread.. i had 18 people watching him eat this morning.
so my question to you is.. should I set it up 24/7...
