    Sunshine's Not Eating...

    My 1 year old Russian Tortoise hasn't been eating very little if at all recently. The temperatures in her enclosure are correct and I've given her a soak as well. She seems active otherwise, but I'm worried about her eating. I heard there are possible mouth infections that could be hindering...

    Leopard tortoise not eating and losing weight.

    My 10 month old leopard tortoise is not eating and is losing weight. I’ve had it for about 6 weeks. The last two times I’ve weighed him he was 85g and then 82g. I’ve attached some pictures of the tortoise table. Is there anything that you can see that I’m doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
