Hello everyone! forum newbie here! I used to have all sorts of reptiles as a teenager. I recently adopted a 4” Russian tortoise. Had him since Friday, and he loves his baths, but hasn’t shown any interest in eating yet. I’m not worried, as he’s getting acclimated to his new home (a huge storage tub). Anyway, thought I’d say hello!

Welcome, we all love to see pics of your tort here😁
Don’t have a whole lot yet, didn’t want to add the additional stress of having to be photogenic as well as getting used to new surroundings. Here’s one of Koopa exploring his winter residence.

Well, never mind on the lack of feeding desire. He ate most of his greens and several grassland pellets.
