Hey I hear coco making some noise from time to time ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ
I think it was just because he was digging inside his hide haha!!

Also today I gave him a lot more than usually because yesterday he got a little bit of food!!

Can a tort go with a couple days without food? Or no??

I think they CAN but that doesn't mean it is ideal. I believe babies eat a lot, and tortoises are in general grazers. I would leave sufficient food every day for them to eat throughout the day and leave a little.

Hey, so now I do see some bubbles in his nostrils ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I know it may take some time, but on average how long does it take for a tort to get better??

Yes...the gave him some medicine today too!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
His basking area is up to 101 and his cooler side is @79 and his hide is 86! And humidity is around the 60โ€™s!!

I don't think healing takes place overnight, but keep patience and keep Coco warm, give medicine and drops, and soak him every day. Hopefully in a couple weeks we will see improvement. Praying for this little guy to get better!

So unfortunately I had to move coco to another location! Yes heโ€™s off the floor!

So let me explain what happened! For some reason the extension chords I have are not working for whatever reason! Doesnโ€™t make sense..they are bran new!
So when I thought the lights burned out..well...yeah Iโ€™m confused tho because the outlet switch is on and the light on the extension chord is also on!
Any suggestions in what it could be or what I Should get instead for cocos lights?

Yes his lights are here..so I wanna see how this will work!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Can there be a circuit breaker outage somewhere or something??

Have you tried plugging something else into the outlet to see if itโ€™s the outlet? Plug in a radio or a table lamp or something that can indicate whether or not the outlet is has power to it.
