We brought Fletcher home on Tues and he is not really interested in eating much yet, I'm wondering if this is typical while they adjust to a new home? I can bring him outside to graze but wanted to let him get used to his enclosure and not overwhelm him right away. What are some favorites with Hermanns that I can try to get him eating better?

Hello! Welcome to the forum! My baby tort didn’t eat for a few days when I brought him home, but once he started he never stopped. I offered Herbal Hay from tortoise supply, highly recommend! Or you can go see what weeds you have in your own yard. Dandelion, Plantain leaves, grasses. Also certain types of flowers they love. Don’t worry, I’m sure he’ll warm up to the enclosure if your temps are alright. Sometimes when first introduced they sleep for awhile since it’s an uncomfortable change. Hope this helps!
